The Neustadt Dosse gas plant was put into operation in 1903 and is one of the last surviving witnesses to the more than 150-year history of gas production in Europe.
Its uniqueness in Europe are the lying retorts, in which coal was produced city gas. Coveted by-products were coke and tar. Designed in 1902 and opened in 1903, it supplied light and heat to Neustadt (Dosse) until 1980. Today, it preserves the "know-how" of the former gas technology as a technical monument.
