The Gasometer Oberhausen is a former gas holder in Oberhausen, Germany, which has been converted into an exhibition space. It has hosted several large scale exhibitions. The Gasometer is an industrial landmark, and an anchor point of the European Route of Industrial Heritage and the Industrial Heritage Trail. It was built in the 1920s, and reconstructed after World War II.


I missed two exibitions at the wonderful Gasometer, but finally made it again. Of course, not in the original year, but luckily the current exhibition got extended again ;) The fascinating exhibition celebrates in visually stunning images the life of plants and animals (most images are already well known from National Geographics) – the highlight is a 20 metre large terrestrial globe in the gigantic interior.
