If you think the Tempelhof Airport is the only airport in and around Berlin that has found a new meaning and a second life, you probably haven’t heard of the former military airport of Finowfort that is about an hour outside of Berlin near Eberswalde. I first heard of this airport through our blogger colleagues from Dandy Diary who shot the lookbook for their amazing travel backpack with Harris Tweed and Johnnie Walker Black Label there a couple of months ago. In the haunting photos you see what looks like an abandoned old airport with a couple of overgrown hangars and rusty old military planes. In fact the airport is not quite as dead as it looks in the photos from the lookbook as it is home to an airport museum showing a lot of classic small planes and technical equipment of the old airport. They also host a couple of special events over the course of the year such as old timer fairs and car races, miniature plane model conventions and more. I think the place has a lot to offer in terms of stunning visuals and interesting historic memories. Check out some impressions from the airport including some of the lookbook photos from the Dandy Diary backpack.
