Berlin Tempelhof Airport (German: Flughafen Berlin-Tempelhof) (IATA: THF, ICAO: EDDI) was one of the airports in Berlin, Germany. Situated in the south-central Berlin borough of Tempelhof-Schöneberg, the airport ceased operating in 2008 in the process of establishing Schönefeld Airport as the sole commercial airport for Berlin.
Tempelhof was designated as an airport by the Ministry of Transport on 8 October 1923. The old terminal was originally constructed in 1927. In anticipation of increasing air traffic, the Nazi government began a massive reconstruction in the mid-1930s. While it was occasionally cited as the world's oldest still operating commercial airport, the title was disputed by several other airports, and is no longer an issue since its closure.
Tempelhof was one of Europe's three iconic pre-World War II airports, the others being London's now defunct Croydon Airport and the old Paris – Le Bourget Airport. One of the airport's most distinctive features is its large, canopy-style roof, which was able to accommodate most contemporary airliners during its heyday in the 1950s, 1960s and early 1970s, thereby protecting passengers from the elements. Tempelhof Airport's main building was once among the top 20 largest buildings on earth; in contrast, it formerly had the world's smallest duty-free shop.
Tempelhof Airport closed all operations on 30 October 2008, despite the efforts of some protesters to prevent the closure. A non-binding referendum was held on 27 April 2008 against the impending closure but failed due to low voter turnout.

Wenn man mitten in Berlin Rad fahren will, dann ist es am allerschönsten auf dem Tempelhofer Feld. Der Tempelhofer Freifahrer hat aufgrund der Lokalität, ein ausgedientes Flugfeld, nicht unbedingt ein Ziel, aber das ist letztendlich ja auch nicht das Wichtigste beim Radfahren. Die Tempelhofer Freiheit wurde hart umkämpft und endlich gewonnen, weswegen der Tempelhofer Freifahrer gern sein Revier abradelt. Er stört dabei die Fußgänger und Grillgruppen nicht groß, er bleibt ja meist auf seiner Rennstrecke in dem Wissen, dass hier einst die Flugzeuge abgehoben haben.
