Adventure day at Tempelhof Airport

05.09.07 14:12
Next Saturday: Large travel exhibition and flight tours with LTU and Air Service Berlin
On 8 September 2007, Berlin Airports is hosting an adventure day at Tempelhof Airport: visitors can expect a travel exhibition, flight tours, guided tours and a small-scale entertainment programme. The event is the start of one of many such events to mark the upcoming closure of Tempelhof Airport on 31 October 2008.

The travel exhibition in the main hall of Tempelhof Airport will revolve around aviation, travel, holidays and relaxation, with travel organisations, airlines, hotels and tourist boards presenting their latest offers. Berlin Airports will also be represented with information on the airports and BBI. Visitors will be entertained with a varied stage show and attractions for kids. There will also be a tombola with great prizes to be won. And a well-being weekend for two as well as vouchers for hotels, flights and restaurants are also up for grabs.

Adventure day provides the perfect opportunity to get to know Tempelhof in a new way. Guided tours will take visitors on a journey through history to, amongst other things, old air raid shelters from WWII, one of the halls converted into a basketball court by the Americans stationed there at the time and the roof with a view of the apron. Bookings can be placed at www.air-service-berlin.de for the special price of 6 euros per person.

Visitors can enjoy a bird's-eye view of Tempelhof on exclusive flight tours over Berlin. An Airbus A330-200 wide-bodied jet operated by LTU will fly from Düsseldorf to Tempelhof where it will offer flight tours. Air Service Berlin will also be offering flights with the raisin bomber DC3, as well as the biggest double-decker still taking to the skies – the Antonov An-2 – and helicopter flights. Flight tours can be booked at www.airevents.de or www.air-service-berlin.de.

The travel exhibition is being held on 8 September 2007 between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Entry is free.

We strongly recommend travelling to the event by public transport.
