Atomium (Square de l’Atomium, Brussels) — Built for the 1958 World Fair, the Atomium represents a molecule’s nine atoms – magnified 165 billion times. Something of a symbol of the city, it provides a panoramic view of Brussels and its surroundings. The 9 spheres that make up the “atom” are linked by escalators. The Atomium hosts a museum and is also a venue for special events. During the Summer, take part in a unique activity: a Death-Ride from the top sphere of the Atomium — a breathtaking descent of more than 100 meters!
