Walk Heysel

Around the Atomium


How can you cover Europe in a single trip? Follow the guide… Head to the north of Brussels with the Atomium in your sights: this is undoubtedly the Brussels monument that’s been the most famous worldwide since 1958 and the World Fair. Sparkling since its renovation in 2005, this symbol of our city hosts numerous exhibitions. In its upper sphere, a restaurant area offers a 360° view over the whole of Brussels and far beyond. An extraordinary attraction awaits you at the foot of this giant: Mini-Europe. All the member States of the European Union are represented here by their famous monuments reproduced right down to the tiniest details. Here, you move around from country to country from one magnifi cent scale model to another. Adults can’t believe their eyes, while children get an enjoyable geography lesson while having fun at the same time. The interactive centre “Spirit of Europe” gives you a chance to test your knowledge of Europe. Nearby, Bruparck is a village for relaxation and refreshments and the Planetarium offers you a fl ight into the galaxy. You can also head for the Orient by visiting the Japanese Tower and the Chinese Pavilion nestling in the park of the Royal Castle of Laeken (residence of the royal family) or treat yourself to a break in the leafy-green setting of Osseghem Park to admire its surprising open-air theatre.
