Fresh renowed and bright flat located in one of the district of Neukoelln around Tempelhof area, which get remarkably attention after the closure of the airport in 2008.
The flat has 1 bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen is equipped with all things that are necessary for cooking and eating, fridge / freezer, gas stove with 4 plates and oven. The bedroom has 2 bright windows and is funrnished with a sofa-bed (150 x 200) and with typical furniture style of the 60s and 70s, recalling a vintage atmosphere and the coziness of the wood design: the bed, the sideboard, the lights and the closet. In addition to this the anti-noise windows, the pictures and the big propeller on the wall are material witness of a space and time proximity to the ex airport. Everything tells a magic and controversial history. The building where the flat is located is on the border between Kornerkiez and Schillerkiez and was exactly on the landing trajectory of the airport, as the approach lighting system based on the building states.
The Neukoelln district around the ex airport Tempelhof contains 2 small Kiez „Kornerkiez“ and „Schillerkiez“ which have changed their face in the last 10 years. After the closure of the Airport in 2008 and after the referendum in 2014 won by the voters which rejected the development planes, the area became an important melting point and huge park which gave to all the people a free public place for playing, walking, biking, skating eating and overall socializing.
Tempelhof Airport remains a historically protected landmark and a symbol of the eventful history of Berlin itself. On the one hand, it is an expression of Nazi ideology and served in World War II as a weapons production site using forced labour. On the other hand, Tempelhof is also a symbol of freedom, and the Air Lift of 1948/49 made the airport famous throughout the world. During the division of Germany the airport was the gateway to freedom for many people.
