The gasometer is more than an industrial monument. Since its decommissioning some twenty years ago, it has become the landmark of the city of Oberhausen and, moreover, the unmistakable hallmark of a whole region. Built in the late 1920s, Europe's largest disc gas tank impressively recalls heavy industry, which has shaped the Ruhr area for more than a century.
The Gasometer Oberhausen is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10 to 18 clock, also on public holidays and in the NRW holidays also on Mondays.
