Atomium is an impressive 102 meters structure that is a 'never miss' sighting in Brussels. To get there from the Gare du Midi train station just take the metro route number 6 and get off at the Heisel station, last but one station for this metro line. If you arrive to Gare du Nord train station, all you have to do is to go to the Rogier station with metro 3 or 4 and then with 6 to Heisel. There is also there an IMAX cinema close to the Atomium and a mini Europe park (http://www.minieurope.eu/en/index.html). The fees for the Atomium are: 9 euros for one adult, 6 euros for students and seniors, children under 6 years enter for free and between 6 and 11 years for 2 euros. It is opened from 10 AM to 6 PM, but the last entrance is 5:30 PM. More about the Atomium on their official site: http://www.atomium.be/Main.aspx?lang=en
