“Disappointment”
Review of CentrO

CentrO
Ranked #1 of 3 Shopping in Oberhausen

Reviewed December 13, 2012

I had red so meny reviews of this so called great shopping center, but now, I'm just disappointed. It was big, OK, but I did not have any "character" what so ever. Zara, H&M and other chain-stores were there, but nothing special. The food in the food-court was OK, but the variety was poor and we ended up on subway...

We went to CentrO this weekend, where we started with an ok amount of people in the buidling; But wow they kept on coming; It was really really busy around noon; The food court was packed; Still it was a very nice experience, but I would go back on a week day instead of a weekend with the christmas market; On that the Chrismas market is a real nice one, big and very well designed;
When I compare with a weekend Dusseldorpf, then I must say that I missed the city experience;
So yes nice, when the weather is bad and not in the christmas market weekends.

If you like shopping you'll probably love this place, however if you're not too interested in fashion there is most likely not much else here for you. There is a lot of parking which is free, and it is not far from Oberhausen so a trip to the mall is not a huge waste of time even if you don't find anything to buy.

I wouldn't recommend trying to eat here because almost everything is in a single food court with very limited shared seating... Not to mention the incredibly badly sign posted and limite toilet facilities.

We visited this out of town shopping mall which has lots of free parking and long hours so that you can shop till you drop!

The building is modern with lots of glass so there is plenty of natural light.

They offer a shopping guide which is helpful and you can take it with you to find all the shops you really want to visit.

There is also a food court offering a good choice of places to eat or just have a drink.

It has recently been extended and now includes a large Peek & Cloppenburg department store as well as many clothes shops, jewellery, toys and much more.

A very nice shopping experience, very similar to American shopping malls.

Visited this shopping mall. This is easily found and the parking is free. There are 200 plus shops but there is nothing special in this mall (perhaps because I am from the United Arab Emirates where Dubai Mall is located). There are random summer sales like everywhere else in Europe. There is a food court with at least 2 places where you can find "Halal" food for muslim travelers. In addition there is cinema. Overall, this is worth a visit if you're shopping or just want to an air conditioned place if you're running away from the heat wave hitting most of the tourist destinations in the Europe this summer.
