Visit Atomium - Mini-Europe - Design Museum Brussels

Information

The Atomium was designed and built for the Brussels World's Fair in 1958 and holds the middle ground between sculpture and architecture. Representing an iron crystal (with 9 atoms) enlarged 165 billion times, the monument, with its unique silhouette, has over time become the symbol of Brussels and Belgium. The Atomium not only offers the most beautiful view of Brussels, but also surprises its visitors with permanent and temporary exhibitions and installations that make it, year after year, one of the main attractions in the capital of Europe.
