These Corona rules apply from April 3rd 2022

From April 3rd the 3G proof, mask requirement and distance rules will no longer apply when visiting the Gasometer Oberhausen. Nevertheless, we expressly recommend wearing mouth/nose protection. Stay healthy!

These Corona rules apply from March 20th. of 2022

Please take note of the Corona Protection Ordinance, which comes into force on March 20th. Accordingly, the 3G rule applies when visiting the current Gasometer exhibition. Only vaccinated, recovered and tested persons will be admitted. The presentation of a negative antigen test (max. 24 hours old) or PCR test (max. 48 hours old) counts as proof.

The convalescent status is valid from the 28th day until the 180th day from the date of the positive PCR test, i.e. until six months after infection. Proof of this must be carried and will be checked at the entrance together with the identity card.

The vaccination status can be proven with a valid vaccination card or the entry in corresponding Corona apps.

Pupils up to and including 17 years of age are exempt from the 3G rule and do not need any proof.

You do not need a fixed appointment to visit the Gasometer. The Oberhausen Gasometer is an industrial monument of considerable dimensions. The more than 7,000 square metres of exhibition space offer enough room for appropriate distances. Access to the lifts is limited to five people. Contact surfaces are disinfected at regular intervals.

Please wear mouth/nose protection during your visit in the Gasometer.

We look forward to your visit.

25 years exhibition hall, 16 extraordinary exhibitions

The Oberhausen Gasometer can look back on 25 eventful years as Europe's highest exhibition hall with 16 exhibitions and over eight million visitors. Already with the opening of the first exhibition "Fire and Flame" on 22 July 1994, the gigantic gas storage facility made a name for itself as a "cathedral of industrial culture". Many internationally renowned artists have been inspired by the unique spatial experience, including Christo, who used the Gasometer twice for his installations "The Wall" (1999) and "Big Air Package" (2013). The exhibitions "Sternstunden" (2009/10), "Wunder der Natur" (2016/17) and "Der Berg ruft" (2018/19) developed as real crowd pullers. The following video gives a complete overview of all 16 exhibitions of the past 25 years.
