Great place to shop, eat, hang out etc. Parking is free. Outside there is a boulevard with restaurants and bars. Inside there are a lot of stores and a foodcourt. The food outside is nicer than at the foodcourt.

If you are looking for American style shopping, this mall is for you. It is very easy to find and get to and parking was free, at least in the parkhaus that I was at (first one and the one most far away) The group of building includes a Lego Discovery Center (there is also a Lego store in the...

Although not well known, this relatively new and modern area is quite a surprise from the surroundings. International cuisine and well known brands can be found all over the place. Admittedly, I got lost several times in the shopping mall, due to its sheer size.

This mall is one of my favorites in northern Europe! It has a variety of clothing & accessories stores for various budgets, along with some good food options. Also, there is a lot of parking available. Overall, great mall if you are not overwhelmed by crowds & choices.

CentrO is one of the most famous and popular shopping malls of North Rhine Westfalia and therefore very crowded. Unfortunately it kinda destroyed the old "downtown" of Oberhausen so its even more modern and absolutely worth to see - when you're visiting Oberhausen or Ruhrgebiet. Otherwise you shouldn't waste your time.

Centro, located in Oberhausen, is regarded as the biggest shopping mall in Europe. We went here just before christmas and had a really nice day. First of all: the place is easy to reach by car and by public transport (lots of busses and trams to the main railway station of Oberhausen). There are more than 10.000 free parking places... More

Huge mall! Lots of American stores. Would have been a normal experience if it were not for the Christmas market happening right outside of centrO's mall. Avoid weekends in December since it is densely packed!

Lots of high quality shops with great prices in an enjoyable atmosphere with great service and friendly staff. Really like the variety, the sweets at Kaufhof Galleries, the inimateswear at Gilly Hicks, Peek and Cloppenburg (which is one of my favourite shops). I do not like malls, but CentrO is a good choice if you want to buy all you... More

Everyone said it is the best and bla bla in Europe,but it's not even the close!!! It's ok to visit once in a lifetime, but everything is in Tedesco (german). Starbucks is very diluted and weak.
