Since it was built for the 1958 World Exposition the Atomium has been the symbol of the 20th century and a mark of honour to progress and welfare. It represents an elementary iron crystal enlarged 165 billion times according to the centred cubic system. The spheres represent the atoms in the crystal lattice, the tubes represent the binding power between the atoms. Engineer Waterkeyn and his team built the Atomium without cranes were high enough At the top, you can enjoy the marvellous panorama. The Atomium is 102 metres high and weights 2500 tons, the longest escalator in a side tube is 35 metres and can handle up to 3000 people per hour. The authentic lift was not removed but with a speed of 5m per second it is not at all the quickest in Europe anymore.
