The airport was closed in 2008. The site is located in today's Berlin districts of Tempelhof-Schöneberg and Neukölln. The monumental building complex, which is about 1.2 km long, is a listed building, is used for events and can be visited as part of guided tours. The former airfield with its runways and taxiways has been opened to the general public for leisure activities in 2010 as an inner-city park under the names "Tempelhofer Freiheit" and later "Tempelhofer Feld". There are several access points from Tempelhofer Damm, Columbiadamm and Oderstraße in Neukölln.
