The AtomiumBuilt in preparation for the 1958 Brussels World Fair (Expo '58) and designed by Andre Waterkeyn the Atomium is an iconic European landmark.
The structure is a 165 billion times magnified version of a unit cell of an iron crystal. The Atomium is 102 metres high and has 9 spheres all connected together by tubes. Visitors are able to enter each of the spheres, each houses an exhibit or public space whilst the top sphere provides a panoramic view over Brussels. The spheres are connected by escalators in each of the connecting tubes.
Well worth a visit for all the family when in Brussels.
