Fackelführung durch das alte Hüttenwerk

Dabei legt die Führung einen besonderen Schwerpunkt auf die Industriegeschichte. Wo Arbeiter hoch oben im schneidenden Wind den kochenden Hochofen befüllten oder unten, nur mit Hut und Handschuhen geschützt, das Abstichloch aufbrachen, dort regierten höllischer Lärm, giftige Gase und klebrige Stäube, die sich in die Lungen fraßen. Auch daran soll diese Führung erinnern. Erkunden Sie Gießhalle, Bunkertaschen & Co. und freuen Sie sich auf einen feurigen Abend.

What people are saying about Oberhausen

Overall rating

5.0
(3 reviews)

We were very skeptical because the reviews online were pretty negative, and we only went along with it because our daughter really wanted to go. We were pleasantly surprised. We found both the facility and what there was to see very nice and informative. We were there on a weekday, so it wasn't that busy and you could look at and listen to everything very closely. Yes, I think the price is right. It's understandable that maintaining a place like this is very expensive, but maybe if it were a bit cheaper, more people could afford it and then the same thing would be achieved.

Very nice in itself, smaller than expected but still complex - What was disappointing was the look behind the scenes - short video introducing individual animals, quick look at the shark eggs and then quickly putting together some food, which was then thrown into the tank - All in all, not what was expected - but otherwise a beautiful facility and a lot of variety in the sea creatures

I liked everything. Minus: no fries for children. And the game rooms are very nice.

It is worth to see, kids enjoy the whole afternoon at the Sea life Centro.

We were very very satisfied, my children had a lot of fun.
