Good to visit, we payed to go up and there was good views but was so hot at the top and the queue to go down was horrendous! Cool structure though.

The Atomium was a great place to visit! Very interesting exhibits inside - we saw the Surrealist exhibit while we were there. It's an amazing structure just to see.

For the on-budget South African traveler please give this one a miss, unless you are a Margritte fan. The entry is very expensive, but we forked it out because we traveled all this way. Rather take a selfie at a distance to prove that you...More

A spectacular structure and well worth a visit just to experience the engineering ingenuity. The displays within vary from interesting to bizarre (we are not fans of Magritte). The views out are good in fine weather and the exercise within is not over taxing for...More

The hop on hop off is a good way to see all of Brussels. You can buy a metro day ticket which will take you the Heysel station right beside the Atomium or you can use the HoHo to take in all of Brussels and then get off at... More
