0 Kommentare

At Big City Hostel Berlin, we are lucky to be situated quite literally just a stones throw from one of the most fascinating pieces of history and recreation in the city of Berlin: The Berlin Tempelhof Airport, or what may be better known as ‚The Tempelhofer Freiheit‘ as a result of its use during the Cold Wars Berlin Airlift. A sight that must be seen to be believed, the out of commission airport is now a recreational area and nature preserve in the centre or Berlin, now known as Tempelhofer Feld, and is home to some of the most impressive events in the city. So if you want to check out this absolutely marvellous piece of European history, keep an eye out for Cheap Accommodation in Big City Hostel, and we’ll ensure a hassle free stay in a lovely environment, with Cheap Hostel prices.

Since the 2008 decommissioning of the airport, the Tempelhofer Feld has been home to numerous large events, including fashion and music festivals. Having been designed with one of the worlds largest buildings, this makes it a perfect location for holding fairs and stages in the massive hangers. Outside of the main buildings, the expansive several kilometre long runway sections and surrounding green areas make for perfect cycling or jogging tracks, while the surrounding green areas are used as Nature Reserves or recreational areas for BBQs, relaxing, and general fun-having. Some of the larger events at the Tempelhofer Feld include the Berlin Marathon, the Berlin Festival, the Fashion Tradeshow, and a number of large Techno Parties. In the future, there may even be Race Car Touring in the park, which would most definitely be to the amusement of the locals.

As previously stated, the Tempelhofer Feld is a mere five minutes walk from Big City Hostel Berlin, so if you want a Cheap Hostel while you visit Berlin, then don’t hesitate to contact us. We provide the Cheap Hostel experience without cutting corners on comfort, and our friendly staff are there to answer any questions you may have about your visit to Berlin.
