The Gasometer in Schöneberg rises almost 80 metres high into the sky above Berlin. But it is not only courageous and vertigo-free visitors who get their money's worth here.
Laboratory for the energy transition
The Gasometer in Berlin went into operation in 1913 and has been a listed building since 1994. After its original use as a low-pressure gas container, it was used alternatively as an advertising space, event space and television studio. It became best known for Günther Jauch's political talk show on the German TV channel Ersten from 2011 to 2015.
Today, the area around the striking building of industrial culture is home to the EUREF Campus: a future location for companies from the fields of mobility, energy and sustainability. In addition to international companies, event venues and changing exhibitions can also be found on the extensive grounds and in the premises of the Gasometer. The interior of the listed building is scheduled for completion by 2024, with the grey, historic steel framework serving as a frame for the round new building.
In the lower part of the Gasometer, a conference area is planned; from a height of 16 metres, 28,000 square metres of office space will be created. Even higher up, there will be space for events and presentations. From the Sky Lounge with roof terrace, which will be at a height of around 66 metres, you can then enjoy the view over Berlin. The project is scheduled for completion by 2024.
Thematic tours of the site are currently on offer. Various cafés and restaurants make Berlin's reallaboratory for the energy transition a nice destination for anyone interested in sustainable places in Berlin. By the way: The counter attached to the Gasometer is a countdown and shows how much CO2 we are still allowed to emit in order to achieve the climate target of a maximum of 1.5 degrees of warming.
