    by zadunajska8 Written Aug 15, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Atomium is a well known sight in Brussels but it was not intended to be a permanent structure. It was built for the 1958 Brussels world fair but it was so popular and enigmatic that it was retained long after the event and was in fact was restored in 2006 to ensure it's continuation well into the 21st century.

    As well as being a very unique iconic construction viewed from outside, the atomium is also an exhibition centre and hosts a number of temporary exhibitions every year. At the time of writing this, I had just returned from seeing an exhibition about making water available for all the people of the world and how important rational water usage will be in the future.

    But... it's not likely that there are many people visiting the atomium because of any of it's exhibits (i had no idea what exhibit there would be until I got there!), people only see the exhibits by accident really as they are probably 99% there to see the building.

    The tour of the exhibits takes you around 4 of the globes, sometimes using escalators and other times you just have to walk up or down fixed stairs. The escalators inside the tubes linking the spheres are quite an experience.

    There is also the chance to visit the top sphere where there is a restaurant and a viewing platform with spectacular views across Brussels and the Flemish Brabant. You take an elevator to the top sphere from ground level which gets you there in an amazingly quick 22 seconds. What is not so quick is the queue to get to the elevator (both going up and going down).

    The Atomium is open 7 days a week from 10am to 6pm (ticket office closes at 5.30pm). Adult admission is €11 but you save €3 off this price if you have a Brussels card.
