    The Atomium is a large iron crystal molecule at the Parc des Exposition. There is a lift which takes you to the top, where there is a restaurant and a great view of the city.

    The newly refurbished atomium is now open and worth a visit, to be combined with a wander around the park.

    Sadly, the atomium is not pushchair friendly

    One of the world wide known sigths in Brussels was built for the World Fair of 1958. Atomium is 102 meters high and represents atom magnified 150 billion times. Inside the monument is elevator.

    Built for the 1958 World's Fair, it is one of the symbols of modern Brussels. You can go inside, though I did not have time to do that.

    The Atomium
    At a sunny summer-evening it still stands for the most popular view in Brussels... Builded for the World Expo of 1958 as a visualisation of a iron-atom...

    An unusual structure to say the least! For about 5 pounds you can reach the top for stunning views of the area.

    In all its glory!

    It costs a lot to go up. I didn't but just to walk under is a must see activity, beside there is a nice village with several nice restaurants and a big Movie theater named Kinopolis.

    It's a well-known landmark build as the Belgian Pavillion for the 1958 Worldfair. From the upper sphere you have a splendid view at almost 100 meters high upon Brussels and surroundings.

    This is a design that I imagine some will love and some will hate. Fortunately I love it (see pic) a very futuristic design - see the web link below if you want more info.

    Atomium. Built for the 1958 World Fair, you're bound to see this massive molecule stand-out above the trees.
    Nice park around it, and also a close walk to the Palace of Laken.

    The Atomium. Althougt the last years the detoriation is quit visible (no funds for maintenance), it remains an impressive building. The parc (Jubelparc) surrounding the Atomium is also worth a visit.
