cheap accomodation for adult 2 teens visiting for concert

My teenagers has just booked their long awaited kpop concert in Oberhausen, junsu only found out about the tickets today, we need to find somewhere to stay near the concerthall in oberhausen for friday 30th november, any tips, I know it will be a busy time as the kerst markets start around then. Also I was planning on driving, do i have to have winter tyres on my car by law in Germany at this time? Is it worth leaving my car at a park and ride station (if they have them), to save me getting lost in a strange city.

The concert is in the Turbinenhalle. The former gas machine hall of the Gutehoffnungshütte (GHH - the ironworks of Oberhausen) from 1909.

A remain of the GHH is also the Gasometer Oberhausen, the landmark of this city.

And the centrO - Europe's largest shopping complex was also built on the former area of the GHH

GHH owned from 1921 till 1986 the truck maker MAN.

.

Oberhausen is part of the Ruhr Area - Germany's biggest conurbation.

The Turbinenhalle is a 5 min walk from the tram/bus stop Lipperfeld (field E5).

You can search e.g. for accommodation using

http://www.hrs.com

and give as destination "Im Lipperfeld 23, 46047 Oberhausen". This will list all available hotels by distance from the Turbinenhalle.

The Lipperfeld stop is well served. Throughout the night. You can check connections with the VRR timetable

From: Oberhausen (Rheinl) Lipperfeld

.

On winter tyres the law in Germany is a bit unclear. Required are for the weather "appropriate" tyres. E.g. if you cause a traffic jam in snow with summer tyres or even more an accident you will be fined. Snow is not very likely in the Ruhr Area end of November. But not excluded either.

Turbinenhalle is also on this route, but no anchor point. Most interesting near Oberhausen are the landscape park North in Duisburg

and the Zollverein world heritage site
