Oberhausen Travel Guide: 38 reviews and 174 photos

At last we have reached the final purpose of our travel in 2006 - the German city of Oberhausen!

Every year since 1999 we participate in the world championship among German shepherds. We visited Karlsruhe (three times), Ulm (twice), Bremen and Düsseldorf. The turn of Oberhausen has come this time.

Oberhausen is a city in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is located in the Ruhr area, 35 km to the north of Düsseldorf.

Gasometer of Oberhausen is its "Industrial Cathedral". Gasometer is Europe's highest plate gas container. The Gasometer of Oberhausen is an outstanding landmark of the Western Ruhr Area and in particular of the town of Oberhausen. Other than that it is an impressive example for building history and a spectacular location for events. Since 1994 annually changing exhibitions of impressive magnitude have turned the Gasometer into a successful cultural location within North Rhine-Westphalia.

The world championship among German shepherds SV-Championship-Breed-Show (SV Bundessiegerzuchtschau) took place on September, 1-3rd in the main stadium of the city.
It took 4 days.
First day: ? Allocation of starting numbers. Our dog ? Aurum Aglis Vinika got her number.
There were 346 males and 319 females in working class.
There were 209 males and 304 females in young classes.
There were 341 males and 468 females in junior classes.
Total number of German shepherds from all over the world reached 2157 dogs!

Our dog Aurum Aglis Vinika got the 122-nd "excellent" in the working class among 341 dogs who were declared in this competition.
It's a great success for the only Russian dog in the female working class! We are happy!

There are a lot of sightseengs in Oberhausen. We hadn't an opportunity to see all of them because four days we stayed in the stadium. But I managed to see some of them: Gasometer, CentrO, Zoo and Schloss.

The Schloss Oberhausen has classical architectural features. This Schloss gave its name to the station, built in 1846 in the vicinity and to the town itself.

      Never find ourselves in Oberhausen if our dogs taking part in the dog show! But the famous Gasometer was rather interesting nevertheless.

    I really like the view from the Gasometer. It's nice you were able to visit this city. If not for the dog show, I doubt you'd ever plan on visiting Oberhausen.

    Very interesting and unique page I enjoyed a lot. The most doggy (or better to say German sheppard's) travelogues on VT :-) Congratulations for Aurum Aglis Vinika! Where is the 2007 championship?

    Privet, Sergey! A most interesting page - who would have thought of making a gasometer into an "industrial cathedral"! Marvellous dogs too - congratulations on your results.

    The gasometer as an exhibition hall -- very informative tips on the history and technical details of this unusual building. Somehow I have never been to Oberhausen, but I have been to Duisburg and Essen, which are just a short distance away.
