Oberhausen: Gasometer

Gasometer Oberhausen is an industrial-culture and municipal landmark. With an altitude of 117 metres and a diameter of 67 metres, the industrial monument's airy interior houses Europe's largest exhibition venue. Numerous artists, including the Christos, have taken up the challenge and realised spectacular, space-filling exhibitions. A shiver of dread may run down your spine during the trip in the glass lift, but you'll be rewarded by the expansive panorama view across the surrounding landscape.
