The Gasometer ("Gaskessel") is - along with the famous suspension railway - one of the landmarks of Wuppertal. Today, the former gas storage facility is home to a diverse cultural offering with Visiodrom, changing exhibitions, a skywalk and a restaurant.

Visiodrom

The Visiodrom in the Gaskessel Wuppertal is Europe's largest 360° screen. The pillarless room inside is 47 meters high and has a diameter of 38 meters. Completely equipped with screens and numerous high-performance laser projectors, fantastic 360° shows are displayed here on a projection surface of more than 6,0000 square meters. Visitors are thus completely immersed in the impressive dream worlds of the projection shows and are surrounded on all sides by the images of the exhibitions.

Skywalk

Not only the inside of the gasometer is worth a visit. On the roof of the steel giant, at a height of almost 70 meters, is the Skywalk. From there you have an impressive view over Wuppertal and the surrounding area.

Historical Information

In addition to the light shows, there are interesting exhibitions.
