Gasometer Oberhausen started its operations in 1929. The structure initially stored excess gas produced by nearby manufacturing plants. However, demand for the structure's storage capabilities faded after World War II, and it was converted to an exhibition space in the 1990s. Various exhibits have called the structure home since then, including works by Christo and Jeanne-Claude.
The Gas Holder features 75,000 square feet of exhibition space. On top of that, a stage and seating area has been built there as well. Visitors come from around the world to see these exhibitions. Regular additions to the holder keep things interesting for potential visitors.Places nearby:
