Germany: Centro Oberhausen Celebrates 25th Anniversary with New Exhibition

The Centro shopping centre in Oberhausen, which has been operating under the new name Westfield Centro since this month (cf. EAP news of 9 July 2021), is celebrating its 25th anniversary and thus opened the free exhibition “25 Years of Centro“ last Saturday. From September 11th-25th, visitors can trace the history of the popular shopping destination in Germany‘s Ruhr region from its beginnings in the 1990s to current investments on display boards and exhibits such as a miniature Centro in the Centro‘s central dome as well as in attached rooms. A floor-to-ceiling time spiral is also part of the exhibition. “25 Years of Centro“ was realised in cooperation with the Oberhausen City Archive and the Oberhausener Wirtschafts- und Tourismusförderung (Eng.: Oberhausen Economic and Tourism Development Agency).
