Tempelhofer Feld photographed by Ollie Tomlinson | IGNANT Production historically was an area in Berlin used for military practice, and as a parade ground of the Berlin garrison.

Where once planes took off from West Berlin for destinations all over the world, there is now over 300 hectares of green space for skating, strolling, gardening, picnicking, bird watching, kite-surfing and much more.

When Tempelhofer Feld was opened to everyone in 2010 it gave Berlin another unique feature – one of the world’s biggest inner-city green spaces. Various initiatives have successfully experimented with artistic, gardening and social ideas for its use and created a broad range of activities and programmes. Today it is a developed area, with the exception of the Tempelhofer Feld park on the site of the former Tempelhof Airport.

Tempelhofer Feld is also a refuge for many plants and animals. Its size, and open, warm dry environment means that it can play an important role in the conservation of species found here. The park’s spacious, partially natural grasslands are one of the most significant habitats in Berlin for bird species that are endangered in Germany.
