Gasometer und EUREF-Campus

Gasometer and EUREF Campus

The Gasometer on the former GASAG site is considered a landmark of Schöneberg. The site was acquired by EUREF AG (European Energy Forum) in 2007. Since then, a place has been created here to prove that the energy transition in Germany is possible and affordable.

History of the Gasometer

The gasometer is the heart of the plant. It was completed in 1910 and went online in 1913. The gas pressure vessel inside the steel skeleton was one of the three largest in Europe at the time. The gas was needed to power the street lamps in the south of Berlin. The gasometer has been a listed building since 1994. A year later it was decommissioned and dismantled. Only the distinctive steel frame remained standing.

Gasometer expansion

Meanwhile, the construction site is bustling with activity. The scaffold is being restored in line with the requirements for a listed building. Inside it, an energy-efficient new building will be erected by 2024. A conference room will be created in the lower area. Above it, offices are being built on 12 floors.
Unfortunately, guided tours of the gasometer are no longer available in the meantime.
However, visitors will be able to enjoy the view again once construction work is complete: A “skylounge” will be built at a height of 66 meters.
The last ring of the gasometer remains undeveloped.


The campus at the foot of the steel giant is known for the topics of climate neutrality, new mobility concepts, resource conservation and sustainability. It is home to around 150 companies and research institutes with over 5,000 employees.
Futuristic-looking, climate-neutral new buildings stand on the site. In between, there are the listed “Messel Houses” made of clinker and brick, which have been renovated according to aspects of historic preservation and energy efficiency. The campus architecture thus represents a successful fusion of old and new.

The CO2 climate targets set by the German government for 2045 have already been met here since 2014.
The campus also has a lot to offer in terms of gastronomy: “The Cord” – one of five resident restaurants – was named one of the 500 best restaurants in Germany in 2022.

All info on campus tours and gastronomy can be found on the EUREF website.
