Save to your city mapThe Atomium was built for the Expo World Exhibition in 1958 and is a well-known futuristic symbol of the city. The extraordinary structure with 9 spheres, and 20 tubes is open daily to the public and provides a stunning 360° panorama view of Brussels. It is also used for hosting both temporary and permanent exhibitions. It is situated within the Heizelpark.
Built for the 1958 Universal Expo, this modern monument is really impressive. The visit is a tour in the middle of the fifties. A real delight for retro amateurs if you don't mind the touristy feel.

A bit pricey but it's worth it, especially the panorama. Try the combined ticket (Atomium+Mini-Europe) to get the full experience.
