Easy to access with public transport,impressive landmark with views over the Ruhr. On a busy day the 2 lifts might not be enough.Within 5 minutes walk from a large indoor shopping center and boulevard with tens of great restaurants and bars.The first 2 floors are given over to the art exhibition while the main space is home to a spectacular light show.Entrance fees and drinks/food are very reasonable.

Nice exhibition but the serenity and mood of the actual light projection inside of the gasometer was destroyed by two employees that had a half hour long loud discussion with each other. We asked them to quiet down and the did so for a few minutes before talking loud again.

Christo has given the Oberhausen gasometer new dimension in a great way. He placed a large white balloon in the gasometer (build in 1929 and rebuild after the war in 1950). This balloon was held in place through additional air pressure, and ropes. Above the balloon powerful lamps were mounted. The lights created in the balloon a magical atmosphere. A simple idea that has probably cost a lot of calculation
Not only the artwork of Christo was very interesting, also the original gasometer was exciting to see. Around the balloon there was plenty of space to walk. Under the balloon an exhibition was arranged about previous Christo masterpieces. An elevator took us to the roof of the gasometer, outside we could walk through a barred corridor on the roof (117 meter). Impressive to explore the industrial monument in this way The view was beautiful, of course.
