where the tallest exhibition area in Europe can be found?

It’s the Gasometer in Oberhausen, Germany. The Gasometer (117.5 m. high, with a diameter of 67.6 m and a usable volume of 347.000 cubic metres) is also the largest gasometer in Europe. It was completed in 1929 as an interim store for waste gas from the nearby Good Hope Mill steelworks. Some time later it took up coking gas from the Osterfeld coking plant, and most of this was used to supply nearby industrial plants. The Gasometer was closed down in 1988. In 1999 Christo and Jeanne-Claude presented their spectacular art project "The Wall" in this highly unusual exhibition area.
