Gasometer in Oberhausen

Gasometer in Oberhausen, Germany

The gasometer in Oberhausen is the largest disc-type gasholder in Europe. Today it serves as an exhibition hall. After reaching the top by an elevator or by a staircase outside the building one have an excellent view of the area.

Inside the gasometer of Oberhausen, Germany

Inside the gasometer of Oberhausen there are often very special exhibitions. During my visit there was an installation by Christo named ‘Big Air Package’ shown. Another impressing exhibit was a panorama photo of the area like it used to be many years ago.
