    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.

    This is a monument that you must not miss—9 spheres made of steel that that has different halls for exhibits and other events as well as a great view of Brussels from the top. Open daily, 10am to 6pm.

    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.

    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.

    It's unique. Don't forget to visit it when you are in Brussel. Get inside and see it also in the evening. The shop has some fine retro souveniers and the restaurant nice food.

    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.

    Built for the 1958 World Exhibition, the Atomium is shaped on the model of an elementary iron crystal enlarged 165 billion times. Have a beer at the restaurant in the top sphere

    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!

    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.

    Great to see, but beware ticket is one price & only the lift takes you to the top & any views, but there are long lines. Choose the stairs and walkways you only get half way up & there are no views.

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

    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!

    Don't spend your time and money here. The top is not that great. You're treated like cattle. There's other places in Brussels to get a good view of the city - like Parc Cinquantenaire, which is free!

  • Tuva J.
    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.
  • Mohammed G.
    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

    11€ to enter, crowded, massive queue to get to the top, another queue to go back down. 33cl beer is a whopping 7euros at the top restaurant. Worth a visit, just not the inside.
