This old gasometer has been totally reconstructed and it serves now as a exhibition centre. The exhibition I saw in July was very impressive. From the top of the building there is a very nice view around the Ruhr area.

An amazing place, the building is really impressive and so was the "Call of The mountains" exhibition we went to see. Kids and adults alike were fascinated by the 3D models of Matternhorn hanging from the ceiling. You can also get to top of the...More
