Overview

Since the end of the 1990s, four teams of star architects have been working on converting four 112-year-old gasometers into a new urban complex. Vienna undertook a remodelling and revitalization of the protected monuments and in 1995 called for ideas for the new use of the structures. The chosen designs by the architects Jean Nouvel (Gasometer A), Coop Himmelblau (Gasometer B), Manfred Wehdorn (Gasometer C) and Wilhelm Holzbauer (Gasometer D) were completed between 1999 and 2001. Each gasometer was divided into several zones for living (apartments in the top), working (offices in the middle floors) and entertainment and shopping (shopping malls in the ground floors). The shopping mall levels in each gasometer are connected to the others by skybridges. The historic exterior wall of bricks was conserved. There are 615 modern appartements, an event hall holding 3.500 People, a cinemacenter, a shoppingmall, a student home, the viennas municipal archive, offices of telecommunication companies, a kindergarden, schools, medical and other facilities in the four gasometers. Visitors and experts can learn everything they always wanted to know about the new architecture of the gasometers, the history of the gas works and alternate uses (from location for James Bond movies to Gazometer rave events) at a guided tour.

Our hotel was a 500 meter walk from Gasometer metro station. The shopping area around this station is decent and this is a major central point of stay in Vienna. Conveniently located close to Stephanplatz (City centre), Karlplatz, and/or Prater, you can access most points...More

These refurbished gas storage tanks provide an interesting contrast with the classical architecture of old Vienna. Our guide told us that they contain flats, shops and a concert theatre. An excellent example of architectural recycling.

Every time when I travel to Vienna, it's possible to see this building from the window of the train. I suppose, each of you has at least been informed about this building, that was beautifully restored in the late 1990s. My main purpose wasn't the...More

The Gasometers in Vienna are four former gas tanks, each of 90,000 m³ storage capacity that have been repurposed to form a city within the city. They were originally built between 1896-1899 and the shells were converted and refurbished in the late 1990's as a...More

Don't come here for the shopping centre. It contains a Spar "Gourmet", a McCafe and it smells of stale chips. The buildings look great from the outside but the inside lets it down. Many of the shops are closed, even at 16:30 on a Saturday.
