Atomium

You are here Home  > Belgium  > Brussels (Bruxelles, Brussel) >  Atomium

Originally built for the 1958 World Fair, the Atomium is Brussels’ equivalent of the Eiffel Tower, except it is located in the suburbs and isn’t as famous. You get a great view from the top of this 102 metre tall steel and aluminium model of the nine atoms in a molecule.

    Honestly-not worth its price! We also had to pay to use the toilets when buying tickets and they were disgusting.The structure is impressive but I'd save your money and just take a photo from outside!

    Nice to chill out and sit in the sun chairs watching the amazing construction from the ground. Didn't bother to stand in line and go up.

    The landmark itself is worth seeing, but the inside is more of a tourist trap. Surely you get to see the city but it's not worth the 12 EUR price. The escalators are cool though

    It is the Effel tower of Belgium. An impressive structure, and you haven't seen Brussels until you visit this! It has a restaurant at the top with a breathtaking view.

    A huge molecule of iron. The construction looks impressive, but the museum inside not worth its entrance price, so just take a look from the outside, laugh at the queue and go away.

    If you come from the Heysel direction, drive southbound past the Atomium. Before the next roundabout is the perfect location for pictures.

    Belgium's most iconic landmark since 1958 or Europe's most bizarre building, as CNN put it, it's an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times. Go to the upper sphere for a great panoramic view.

    Retro feel inside with the history of the Atomium. Interesting temporary exhibits. It is quite a haul up and down, but the elevator takes you to the top. The view from the top is worth the queue.
