Built for the 1958 World Exhibition, the Atomium is shaped on the model of an elementary iron crystal enlarged 165 billion times.
Beyond surreal walks through tubes and spheres, the Atomium houses a permanent exhibition about its history as well temporary exhibitions for a broad public (sciences, design, society).
The upper sphere offers unique and spectacular views across the city skyline.
At night, 2970 lights offer a fairy dimension to the 102m high building.
The panoramic restaurant is daily open until 11pm.
