Apparently, drones are the new thing and they are getting more and more popular around the globe. The French wireless products manufacturer Parrot hosted an event, to celebrate the German launch of its newest product, the Bebop Drone, on Tuesday, November 25, 2014, at the Tempelhof Airport in Berlin.
We got invited to test-drive the new drone, flying through the check-in hall of Europe’s largest historical monument, controlling the drone whether with a tablet, the sky-controller or a Virtual Reality Headset.

German car maker Volkswagen started a new campaign to promote their new upcoming electronic car line e-mobility. The Event was hosted in several cities across Europe, including London, Paris and Berlin, at Berlin’s Tempelhof Airport.

For the fist time, the “Giant Kites Festival” was held Saturday on the Tempelhof Airport in Berlin. Visitors had the chance to watch some really huge (20m wide and 40m long) kites floating above the Tempelhofer Field and because is was the windiest day of the year, many visitors had brought their own kites too.
It seems like the sun doesn’t want to come out this summer and what to do on all these grey windy days? Get your kite and off to Tempelhof Airport.
The Tempelhof Airport has been used since closing to host numerous fairs and events. The first major events included the BREAD & BUTTER fashion tradeshow in July and the Berlin Festival 2009 concert in August.
Since 2010 the vast outside area is being used as a city park and therefore a perfect place for activities like kiting, skating, biking, running and even RC cars can be seen from time to time.
The City of Berlin has just set a new World Record for the largest mosaic picture of the world.
