The Gasometer in Schöneberg is one of the most impressive vantage points in the capital. The industrial monument 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.
Close to heaven
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 as an advertising space, event room, and television studio. It became especially well-known due to a political talk show with Günther Jauch from 2011 to 2015. Today, the site around the prominent vantage point houses the EUREF Campus: a location for companies from the fields of mobility, energy, and sustainability. In addition to international companies, there are also venues and changing exhibitions on the extensive grounds and in the Gasometer premises
Guided tours - ascending the Gasometer in Berlin
The highlight of the Gasometer is of course the ascent and the view it comes with over the city. In a guided tour, visitors can climb the steps and enjoy a breathtaking view in all directions. The minimum age for the tours is 18 years. Children from the age of 12 years may only participate in the tour if accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. In addition, loose objects must remain on the ground floor or be securely attached to your person. The tower can only be visited during the summer months. Would you like to climb the Gasometer? Then please sign up here. Please note that the tours can be cancelled due to weather conditions. In particular, the wind is always stronger higher up than at ground level. We also recommend sturdy shoes and warm clothing for the ascent.
