History
The airport was opened on a former parade ground in 1913. During the First World War, the airport was used for pilot training. Aircraft of the type Fokker, Albatros and Rumpler were also built on the premises.

However, as a result of the Treaty of Versailles, the airfield suffered a similar fate as many other airports in Germany. The facilities, equipment and aircraft were destroyed or dismantled by the winning powers, only to be rebuilt several years later in the 1930s. During World War II, apprentices were trained here in aircraft construction.

In 1945, Red Army troops occupied the airport and stayed there until 1992. During this time, the airport was also extended and reconstructed. The runway was extended and new hangars and bunkers built. Barracks and hangars were constructed on the airport grounds

During reunification, the airport was returned to civilian use in 1992. More rebuilding work took place and in 1996 the first charter flight flew from the airport.
