Directions to Atomium

Created at the time of the Universal Exhibition of 1958 and originally designed to last just 6 months (the duration of the exhibition) it’s still present on the city’s skyline today. After more than fifty years of success, large renovation investments began in the early 1990’s, leaving a building that looks like it was built only yesterday...

Standing at a height of102 meters, its metal structure has a total weight of 2,400 tons with each of its spheres boasting a diameter of 18 meters and weighing in at 250 tonnes. Using admirable technical prowess, the lift in the central pillar of the Atomiumwas created as well as the escalators installed in oblique tubes – which are among the longest in Europe.

The Atomiumstill arouses the curiosity of many a tourist who wonder its significance. Is it a molecule? An atom? An abstract sculpture? Well, no, The Atomium is none other than the representation of the unit cell of iron - magnified 165 billion times…

Today, the Atomium is not just a monument but also a museum which offers both permanent collections and temporary exhibitions. It’s worth knowing that visitors to the Atomium are offered reductions to Mini Europe and the Kinepolis cinema complexes.
