Long Description:
37 Jahre lang führte der Reicker Riese nach seiner Errichtung 1908 ein eher unspektakuläres Dasein. Er brannte beim Bombenangriff vom 13. Februar 1945 aus, wurde danach aber wieder instandgesetzt uns schließlich 1973 stillgelegt. Als Denkmal der Gastechnik in Dresden ist er aber noch heute ein beeindruckendes zeugnis der damaligen Bau- und Ingenieurskunst.

37 years from its construction in 1908 the Giant of Reick led a rather unspectacular existence. It burned out in the bombing of 13th February 1945, but was reconditioned later and finally closed in 1973. As a monument of Gas Technology in Dresden, he is still an impressive reference of the former construction and engineering.
