Berlin Tempelhof Airport was one of the airports in Berlin. Situated in the south-central Berlin borough of Tempelhof-Schöneberg, the airport ceased operating in 2008 amid controversy, leaving Tegel and Schönefeld as the two main airports serving the city.

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.
Tempelhof Airport closed all operations on 30 October 2008.
Up until September 2015, the former airfield was used as a recreational space for the people from Berlin known as "Tempelhofer Feld" In September however, it was announced that Tempelholf would become an emergency refugee camp for the foreseeable future. Currently staying here about 2000 refugees.
