    A voir lors d'une visite à Bruxelles. Ce monument original à néanmoins pris un coup de vieux.

    A beautiful view over the surroundings. Treadmills are great.

    Visita obligatoria en Bruselas. Muy interesante la visita interior y las vistas desde lo alto.

    Si vas con poco tiempo y vas a quitarte de tomarte una cerveza tranquilo por visitar el Atomium, ahórratelo. Deja mucho que desear y tampoco es tan impresionante para la fecha en la que se construyó

    Great from outside but inside it's not worth the money for ticket...

    Space age centre piece of the 1958 World's fair. Open for tours and there is a restaurant inside that opens at 6.30pm.

    Nice views of Brussels, interesting to see how the city has evolved. Good for photos, cool lights, stairs and escalators.

    11 евро. Основная тематика - берегите воду. Сооружение интересное с точки зрения инженеров. Экспонаты весьма посредственные. Обзорная площадка неплоха, все видно. Итог - быть один раз. Оценка 3/5

    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.

    Bruncher à l'Automium c'est possible ! Mais avec la vue exceptionnelle qui s'offre à nous, on oublie les assiettes...

    Designed by André Waterkeyn and constructed for the 1958 Brussels World Fair, it represents an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times. You will be sued if you take pictures for commercial purposes!

    El parque es bonito y el Atomium curioso. Está alejado de la ciudad pero accedes por tranvía/tren en media hora desde Bruselas Centro.

    Take the audio guide. It really helps to understand details not mentioned on the boards

    Atomium is good but don't go to Bruparck. It's tacky and will spoil your experience even seeing it :/
