The Atomium

Paris has the Eiffel Tower, Brussels has the Atomium…

This 102 meter high sculpture is the work of André Waterkeyn, who created it in 1958 for the Brussels World Fair.


This iron atom, which measures 165 billion times its real size, has become the emblem of Brussels, and therefore, a must-see tourist site.


Visit the interior of its spheres, where you will find permanent exhibitions and a restaurant (in the highest sphere).

While visiting the area, you can also make a detour to the Chinese and Japanese pavilions, which also attract the attention of tourists.



Address: Pl. de l’Atomium 1, 1020 Brussels, Belgium
