The Eagle

He used to have a body and sit on top of a swastika which used to sit on top of the main entrance. The Americans wanted to put him into a museum in the U.S. but figured he was too heavy. So they threw his body away and put his head on a little pillar in front of the airport instead.


The grand finale of the Berlin Trip was the Airport Berlin-Tempelhof. Once the largest building on planet Earth, it is considered to be the mother of all modern airports. It was shut down in 2008 but is now far from abandoned, so the best way to explore it is by paying for a tour.
