Ready to Join?

Join us to enjoy the many different facets of mountains and tells of the eternal fascination that these imposing landscapes exert on people at bleak heights where the air is thin. The exhibition invites visitors to participate in the legendary first ascents of the world's most famous peaks with their resounding triumphs and dramatic defeats. And it tells of the thousands of years of human veneration: for mountains have always been places of religious worship, refuge and secluded reflection, full of myths and mystery.

The highlight of the exhibition in the Protected content high Gasometer is a monumental replica of the Matterhorn. It is an impressive staging of the legendary mountain with the aid of state-of-the-art 3D projections alternating between day and night and the seasons. The monumental sculpture hangs upside down in the huge space and is reflected in a large mirror in the top level of the Gasometer. Here visitors have a unique opportunity to see the most famous peak in the Alps from a bird's eye view. Jeanette Schmitz, the Managing Director of the Gasometer Oberhausen GmbH says: "The new exhibition actually moves mountains: we have brought the most famous peak in the Alps, which has shaped people's yearnings more than any other, into the Gasometer Oberhausen and have floated it above the heads of our visitors".
