Platz der Luftbrücke is a landmarked square and transport node in Berlin, Germany, on the border between the localities of Tempelhof and Kreuzberg. The entrance to the former Tempelhof International Airport is on the square. The buildings around the square are now mostly government agencies, in particular police headquarters. The name of the square commemorates the Berlin airlift of 1948/49 in which Tempelhof was the main airfield used; the Berlin Airlift Monument is in the square.
The square is the junction of two major traffic arteries, the north-south Bundesstraße 96 and the east-west Columbiadamm and Dudenstraße . Manfred-von-Richthofen-Straße runs from the square southwest to the Neu-Tempelhof Kiez or housing development in Tempelhof.
