Once again, there is a huge attraction worth seeing at the highest exhibition hall in Europe. In the approximately 100-meter high gasometer in Oberhausen, visitors can experience the fascination of the mountains from 16 March 2018. The highlight of the exhibition, “The mountain calls”, is a monumental recreation of the Matterhorn. The huge sculpture appears to float in the room in mirror image, and is reflected in the floor of the highest gasometer platform, so that from here, the mountain can be seen from its summit. Moving images are projected onto its surface, which show the legendary mountain at different times of the day and in different seasons.

The data for the animation is provided by the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt, the German centre for aviation and space travel. Film excerpts and photos also show how unique flora and fauna emerged in the world’s mountain massifs. As part of the show, which is initially planned to run until December 2018, visitors can participate in legendary first ascents of the most famous summit in the world, and experience the reverence in which humans have held the mountains for thousands of years. From the viewing platform of the gasometer, they can take a breath of air at “high altitude” and enjoy the view that stretches out over the Ruhr area.

The current exhibition, “Wunder der Natur”, the “Wonders of Nature”, is still on view until 30 November 2017, one of the highlights of which is a 20-meter high globe in the interior of the gasometer.
