    During daytime it's okay...but come back when night fall, it lights up and then it's really beautiful

    A very unique monument. If you're visiting Brussels you probably shouldn't miss this one. It's surrounded by a couple of lovely parks so it's definitely worth a visit.

    Too expensive

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

    If you can visit, good. If you can't, it's ok. All about queues: to pay, to enter, to go up and to go down. Needs to be improved. Great icon though.

    If you come from the Heysel direction, drive southbound past the Atomium. Before the next roundabout is the perfect location for pictures.

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

    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.

    Definitely one of the Brussels symbols, and it's a cool one 👍😂

    Nice view from the top but it's not worth the price. Look at the monument from the outside is enough

    The greatest place in #brussels 😍😍

    A bit far from The city center but my advice Is to go to visit It!

    Jacopo Colombo · September 20, 2015
  • Robyn P.

    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.

    Inspiring building

    The #Queues are too long however the architecture from the outside looks fab and to see it is worth it

    Very impressive view

    Kai Rieger · August 12, 2015

    Pretty nice from the outside and 50's flair inside! Definitely worth a visit! Plus great panoramic view from the top ball!

    A unique building, for me nicer than the Eiffel Tower in Paris !

    One of the most beautiful symbol of Bruxelles.

  • Atomium

    The restaurant of the Atomium is managed by an independent restaurateur. Be sure that we make everything in order he may satisfy you and we're happy he does. Please rate the restaurant on his profile.

    You get quite a 60's retro-futuristic vibe from the place - worth a watch

    Anders Lund · July 16, 2015
  • Adam N.

    Spectacular architecture located in a neighbourhood with nothing else going for it.

    You just spend time of your day with no reason...Nothing specially to see..The only worthless is the view and to have some photos...

    Ioannis Papapetrou · April 17, 2015
  • Niklas H.

    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!

    Niklas Hjelm Smith · April 6, 2015
  • Hugo C.

    Absolutely not worthy.

    Hugo Costa · April 4, 2015

    Don't miss out on a photo op here

    Make sure Mini Europe is open. Don't come all the way out just for this. That said, view is nice & structure is interesting.

    This monument was not meant to stay there, but should have been demolished after the Expo of 1958.

    Take a coin as a memory. My son thought he had done it! U would understand when you see it! 😉u are not allowed to enter some parts but the designers' lounge was a good idea! I suggest going there..

    Esen Arzu · February 5, 2015

    I liked it was interesting, amazing but a little hard to visit there with the kids..sometimes we had to climb the crazy stairs!!the photos taken are pretty much expensive! Views are fantastic.
