The last weekend I was in Berlin we went on a tour of Tempelhof airport. Tempelhof, now closed, was one of the oldest major airports in Europe. Orville Wright flew at the location in 1909. The later terminal building is a great example of architecture from between the wars, and is absolutely enormous. Some of the highlights of the tour were the basketball court
, used by American servicemen, the large main terminal hall
, and the underground bunkers
. Click through for plenty more pictures.
Like the pix; can you make anything out of that graffiti besides 'Aeroflot'? :)ReplyDelete
Wow, good eye. I didn't recognize Aeroflot until you pointed it out.ReplyDelete
Couldn't really make out anything else. There was graffiti EVERYWHERE in the underground area.
