CentrO Oberhausen

Situated in Oberhausen's "New Centre" and known for its extraordinary size and selection, the CentrO is Europe's largest shopping complex. With the nearby theme park, it is also a popular tourist attraction.

Shopping and relaxing in the "New Centre""
On a square kilometre of ground on the site of a disused steel factory, a spectacular project was born - the CentrO in Oberhausen is the largest shopping and leisure complex in Europe. With 200 shops and a wide range of cafés and restaurants surrounded by steel, marble and palm trees, it attracts more than 20 million visitors every year.

Places of interest

Oberhausen has a number of attractions that you would not necessarily associate with a town in the industrial Ruhr region. The gasometer, the town's disused gas tower, is now Europe's most unusual exhibition hall. The Altmarkt is a historical square in the heart of the town, while the idyllic Christmas market casts a romantic glow over the CentrO during the festive season.

The museums in Oberhausen reflect the town's industrial heritage. The Rhenish Industrial Museum provides information on more than 150 years of iron and steel-making history, while the Eisenheim housing estate illustrates the life and work of the people who lived there. The Bunker Museum is dedicated to aerial warfare and bunker construction in the Second World War, during which Oberhausen was a popular target for attack because of its industrial importance in the Ruhr area.
