Big Air Package by Christo in Oberhausen

Big Air Package in Oberhausen, Germany

Every year another interesting art project takes place at the Gasometer (a former gas holder) in Oberhausen. In 2013 I visited the ‘Big Air Package’ created by Christo. This time the artist, who is generally known for wrapping huge things, produced a kind of balloon filling the inside of the gas holder.

The gasometer in Oberhausen is the largest disc-type gasholder in Europe. Today it serves as an exhibition hall. After reaching the top by an elevator or by a staircase outside the building one have an excellent view of the area.
