  • Brussels Atomium Admission Ticket

    1. Brussels Atomium Admission Ticket

    The Atomium symbolizes an iron crystal, magnified 165 billion times, referring to the power of nuclear energy that in 1958 was intended for peaceful use. Today it carries on the debate of 1958: What kind of future do we want for tomorrow? It was not intended that the Atomium survive beyond the 1958 World Fair but its popularity soon made it a key landmark, first in Brussels, and then internationally. It has become one of the icons of Brussels, and since its inspired restoration in 2006, it is referred to as the most Belgian of monuments. The panorama alone is worth a trip to the Atomium. Thanks to its location on a naturally elevated plateau on the outskirts of town, the Atomium offers the only true 360-degree panoramic view of the 19 municipalities of Brussels. Themes such as Science, Progress, and the Future, still as relevant today as they were a half century ago, are covered by a ...

    The Atomium was an amazing experience! Great view of the city, and the staff is also really great. They speak French, English, and Dutch, so anyone can go there and feel comfortable with the service.

    It was an interesting experience. there were no places in the English-speaking group, and I went with the Spanish-speaking. As a result, the guides connected me with a parallel English-speaking group. Everything is clear, easy, convenient and efficient. Thanks for the day in Bruges

    The guide explained well everything. It was a little mechanic and the relation to the group was strictly professional. The bus was ok but the people that sit behind me were not friendly at all, unfortunatelly. A lot of people that have done the tour smoked, including the guide, from the moment we left the bus and we were walking... that was really disgusting.
