Tegel Airport

To this day, Berlin-Tegel Airport is considered the symbol of the economic miracle in the emerging West Berlin and looks back on more than seventy years of aviation history: from its beginnings during the Berlin Airlift in 1948 to the revolutionary new construction in the seventies and its new role as the capital city's airport after reunification. Named after aviation pioneer Otto Lilienthal, the airport was the gateway to the free world for walled-in West Berlin. With the commissioning of Berlin Brandenburg Airport, Berlin-Tegel Airport was finally closed and all air traffic in the capital region was concentrated at one location.
