On Tempelhofer Feld, sky, space and freedom seem limitless: Since the opening of Tempelhofer Feld to all in 2010, Berlin has been enriched by one of the largest urban open spaces in the world with international appeal. Where airplanes used to take off, there are now over 300 hectares of green leisure and recreational space for skating, strolling, gardening, picnicking, birdwatching, kiteboarding and much more.
Tempelhofer Feld also provides an important shelter in the middle of the metropolis for rare animal inhabitants and protected plants.
The freedom and unique history of the site inspire civic engagement: This is proven by 18 civic projects in which Berlin residents and citizens have successfully experimented with artistic, horticultural and social ideas and created a variety of offerings for the millions of annual visitors from Berlin and around the world.
The commitment of the citizens continues to be in demand. The goals and contents of a careful development of the field will be worked out together with the population in a broad-based participation process.
