2. The Atomium

Accessible by tram from the city center, the Atomium rises above the city and resembles an atomic structure. It is made of aluminum and steel and was erected for the 1958 Brussels World's Fair. Visitors can enjoy the surrounding park and enter several of the structure's spheres by escalator, stairs, and an elevator. Inside are exhibits and a sky-high restaurant with a panoramic view.
