Atomium And Mini Europe - Review
These are really two separate attractions but they’re at the same place and can be visited for the price of one so why quibble? Let’s cover the Atomium first.
The Atomium is the exact reproduction of the shape of an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times. Though it looks like a sculpture, it actually is a building with it’s own exhibition space and everything. Built in the 1958 Brussels Expo, it symbolises democratic will, progress that’s both social and scientific and an optimistic hope for the future. The main exhibit of the Atomium is a commemoration of the Expo of ’58. The top sphere is a restaurant with terrific views (on a clear day you can see all the way to Antwerp); there’s a kids sphere and three other spheres reserved for events. The building is Brussels’ most famous landmark.
At the foot of the Atomium is Mini – Europe. It’s a very literal description – there are over three hundred 1:25 scale models of famous buildings from over 80 European countries – needless to say, the photo ops here are awesome.
A trip to Mini Europe can also be combined with a trip to the Oceade (a family waterpark) and the Planeterium.
The Atomium and Mini Europe are two of the most astonishing attractions in Brussels, Belgium and even Europe perhaps. You can see the whole of Europe in a miniaturized scale and the magnified version of an iron crystal here. Being insanely popular, tickets for Atomium and Mini Europe have huge queues in the peak season and it can take you hours to enter inside.

Atomium And Mini Europe , Brussels Reviews
Nice place to spend time. Kids will enjoy specially. You get to see miniature models of all major cities of Europe. This place gave me motivation to explore Europe and see the actual sites by visiting different countries. At entry you get a handy information booklet containing all facts about the countries.
This is a great place to see miniaturized famous European buildings/monuments. Very well maintained and attention to details is unbelievable. I strongly recommend this place to every tourist. One could spend a couple of hours easily here. They have benches all over the park to take quick pit stops. Also have a small restaurant.
Nice, but over-priced. Two adults for just the mini-Europe was around €38.00....seriously? Well, it was a good walk with the family and I can see how people may be “inspired” to visit some of the places represented here, but I am more inspired by searching for travel destinations online. Try watching videos on YouTube about these places and you’ll see what I’m talking about. This place is far from the Old Towne, but the metro ride isn’t too long.
Totally loved this place... very beautifully created & maintained. It gives the feel of entire Europe around. The food joint is good... & very friendly staff. Must visit.
Pretty over rated place considering it’s comes under the top 10 things to see in Brussels. Place is dated and requires a good face lift. All props are made of plastic. Many are sun bleached. Boats being towed are partially submerged. Much of the water is silty Not worth the €15:50 entry
