    Im sure I would have enjoyed it more had the views been better on a clear day. Other than that it’s a nice place to visit and see

    El monumento es hermoso, es importante comprar en línea la entrada para evitarse la larga fila.

    Terinspirasi dari bentuk atom, mulanya model bangunan ini dibuat berdasarkan Kristal besi yang diperbesar. Gedung ini memiliki sembilan bola yang saling berhubungan dan berketinggian 335 kaki.

    The restaurant at the top floor is worth the view but the waiter seemed to forget what we ordered. We received one waffle and then no sign of the second one. At the end, we got billed for 3...👎

    Nice place to observe the city, but not the best in Brussel in my opinion. From this place u can see also the mini europe museum

    İlgi alanınıza göre görülüp görülmeyeceğine gitmeden önce karar verebileceğiniz bir yer. Gündüz gözüyle gördüm ve etkilenmedim.

    Demir atomunun 164 milyar büyütülerek yapılan ve şu anda fuar alanı olarak kullanılan ve şahane bir görseli olan yapı. En üst katı ise restoran olarak işletilmektedir. Mutlaka görün.

    Below average. I wont recommend paying for tickets because in my opinion the sightseeing from outside is better.

    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.
