Expert review of Atomium
Brussels’s defining landmark is a set of silver balls! Built for the 1958 World Expo, the 102 metre-high sculpture — that replicates an iron molecule magnified 165 million times— was never intended to be permanent. However, the structure has become such a familiar fixture on the Brussels skyline, that 27.5 million euros was raised to fund its renovation in 2006. It now includes a new ‘Kids World’, exhibition centre, and — at the very top — a restaurant and panoramic viewing station with interactive screens pointing out the various landmarks on the horizon.
Adults 11 euros; children under 6 free, 6—11 6 euros, 12—18 8 euros; combined tickets including Mini Europe are also available.
It costs 4 vouchers from The Must of Brussels booklet (see Brussels insider tips) to gain free entry.
