Tempelhofer Park – Berlin

Tempelhof Airport

Tempelhofer Freiheit is one of the most evocative location in Berlin. This exciting park is strictly connected to many important events of the recent history of Europe: chapters of aviation history has been written here since its designation as an airport, and it eventually turned into a symbol for the defence of freedom with its leading role in the Berlin Airlift, during the Cold War. Now that it has been turned into a public park I really love to take pictures here as it is still brimful of charm and suggestion. I love to think that people can still regain possession of part of its own history by living this park in different ways.

I took this picture a little before sunset with my 70-300 mm, at f/5, 1/640 sec.

    • Thanks for your comment! I am always impressed by the combination of sunset light at tempelhof and the vastness of its runways.. it creates many photographic opportunitys😉

  1. I agree with everything @smackedpentax said – what a great shot! Isn’t it strange how natural it feels to be strolling along the runways and apron of an airport when you’re relaxing at Tempelhof? Great use of a de-commissioned airport to create a useful public space in the city.

  2. Yeah, I agree with you totally: there is a thousand of ways to enjoy this open park and everything you do seems to be more exciting just for being in this charming place!😉 kisses
