Gasometer

The 78 m high gasometer was built between 1908 and 1910. The Schoeneberg gasometer belongs to the type of telescopic gas holder, it stored the city gas in an extendable bell, which consisted of several telescopically nested steel elements, called "water cups", and was embedded in a water basin. Thus, the gas storage tank with its maximum storage capacity could store 160,000 m³ of gas, which was used for household and street lighting.
