The area of the Tempelhof Airport was once a training ground for Prussian troops. Then in the 1920s Zeppelines took off rom here and the public was treated to death defying aerobatics shows. In1936 the field was transformed int ot he largest inner city airport in Europe. Sadly, further construction by the NS regime saw a concentration camp and barracks for prisoners forced to work in the defence industry being built. Berlin was saved from starvation by the Berlin Airlift 1948/49 with planes using Tempelhof airfield. Recently, the airfield has been a basis for a number of citizen's protests and referendums. Thanks to the efforts of the locals Tempelhof airfield today is a recreational area used by all. Please ask us about this tour.
Wonderful new Working World – Opportunities, Pitfalls, Dreams and Reality
Over the past 15 years, our working world has changed dramatically. New forms of employment have replaced the old system of 'normal emplyment' with its clear rules and rights. Most young people encounter this new, complex and challenging work and training situation ill-prepared. We aim to educate students about the realities of todays work environment. We visit factories, union representatives and speak withthe people at work. We examine this highly touted new flexible work style and put together a 'toolbox' for their professional life. Please ask about this theme.

The volunteers of the Berlin Project organise Church Services in odd places like cinemas where a band will play religious music, people bring their own coffee und questions of faith can be discussed with regular people. These services are very popular, especially with artists, intellectuals, students and people working in the creative sector.
