Oberhausen-Rheinhausen, at first glance, may seem like any other little town lying sleepily under a placid blue sky. Don’t be fooled by this sedate exterior, though.
As you enter its perimeter you’re first of all struck by the beauty of the streets and cobbled walks. There is no hurried pace to rush you on. This is where you relax and take your time as you move from one to another of those attractions awaiting you.
Oberhausen-Rheinhausen’s St.Lawrence Church would probably be the first to welcome you to the town. It stands tall and proud in the city center. As you get closer you will be suitably impressed by its artistic brick façade. Check out the icons and the artwork.

The St. Philip and James is another equally impressive specimen of religious architecture.
That’s not all, there’s more history awaiting you at the Old Post Office. This impressive building also houses the Postal Museum. In this age of email and chat, now that’s a museum surely worth visiting. ;-)
If you want more historic buildings, you’ve got to visit the Elementary School. Now that’s a school worth going to. I don’t think any kid going to this school would even think of dropping out.
Oberhausen-Rheinhausen’s indoor swimming pool is just the right place to wind up a long day of sightseeing. If you need more action, take a trip to the well laid out cycling route that takes you through the best of landscapes.
Speaking of landscapes, the nature reserve Wagbachniederung is a good spot if you really wish to commune with nature.
Oberhausen-Rheinhausen has quite an energetic cultural scene. They have a Youth Orchestra which may or may not be performing depending on how lucky you are. If you didn’t catch that, you could check out the Accordion Friends.
