Sabam 2014- Pièce montée

Description

Built by engineer André Waterkeyn in 1958, the Atomium was constructed specifically for Expo 58 and was never meant to stay permanently. However, in 2006 the monument, that is inspired by the structure of an iron crystal, was renovated and since then has welcomed 600,000 visitors per year. If you chose the Atomium option with your Brussels Card, you can cut the first line at the Atomium purchase desk and can directly head to the entrance gates. Just scan the QR code of your Brussels Card to enter. Enjoy your visit! Koos je voor de Atomium-optie in je Brussels Card, dan vermijd je de eerste wachtrij aan de kassa’s en kan je rechtstreeks naar de toegangspoorten gaan. Je hoeft enkel de QR-code van je Brussels Card te scannen om binnen te gaan. Geniet van je bezoek!
