In Oberhausen for a concert we were looking for something else to do. Not wanting to do the standard tourist things like SeaLife and the security exhibition we went to the Gasometer instead. This was one of the highlights of our holiday - an amazing art exhibition with English labels and an English audio guide, a fabulous light show in... More

This enormous industrial relic was saved by public demand and has been renovated to provide a brilliant exhibition space with a lift to the roof and amazing views over a vast area. Well worth a detour

when i went there, there was an exhibition where you can see famous international paintings. Also visit the 320 light on the 3rd floor. if you want a cityview, visit the 10th floor where you can see the Oberhausen city from such height :)

Exhibition is good. But I liked the light-show in the big open room of the Gasometer most. I just went on looking - fascinating!

We recently went to Oberhausen to visit the famed Gasometer. I had visited the place many years ago and had wanted to go back to it, to see if its magic still radiates. We went on a family trip with two young kids. The building is at first between boring and intriguing: tall but not spectacularly so, it has a... More

As the name suggests this is a decommissioned gasometer. From the roof you get a panoramic view of the Ruhr region. Inside on two floors of this immense space is an exhibition space and on the third floor a light show is projected onto the ceiling. At the moment the exhibition consists of statues and full size photos of works... More

Also you can... More

The massive structure has a 70-meter diameter and its height easily exceeds 100 meter. Visitors can access the rooftop via two lifts. The views are amazing!! Inside... More
