Right by the Atomium is the ADAM – the Art & Design Atomium Museum, which hosts various permanent exhibits that provide an insight on plastic designs from the 1950s to the present day. There are also a number of temporary exhibits covering design through other forms including other materials.
It’s one of the most iconic landmarks in Brussels, standing at a height of 102 meters and consisting of nine steel spheres connected all connected by tubes. Located right by Mini-Europe, The Atomium was originally constructed for a world fair, but is now host to exhibits and other public spaces, whilst also offering some striking views of the Belgium capital.
Located within a 7-10 minute walk of Brussels Gare du Midi (South Station) is the Floris Ustel Midi Hotel, which was our stay for a couple of nights in the Belgium capital. Having a hotel within such a short distance from the railway station can often be a factor when booking a short stay in a location that you are not all to familiar with, and this was certainly the case when we booked with the Ustel.
