Practical information while waiting for our reopening.


Dear visitor, dear partner, dear guide, dear event organizer, dear teacher, dear parent, dear all,

We sincerely hope that this message will find you and your beloved ones serene and healthy. We also would like to say a massive thank you to all those who, in one way or another, allow the country and its people to function and not give up during these unusual times. Our gratitude also goes to everyone who, by agreeing to respect the rules of confinement, contributes to the collective well-being.


Since March 13th, all necessary measures have been taken to protect the health of our employees.

Because of the strict confinement rules, our teams work from home, with secure access to all our systems. You still can get in touch with your regular correspondents.

While waiting for its reopening, the Atomium remains very active on social networks.

Follow our news, our games and contests on:


The Atomium joins #Feedthenurses, the social project created by several chefs to support hospitals in their fight against Covid-19 by preparing meals for caregivers.

Starting from Wednesday 22 April, the Atomium, the first Brussels partner of this initiative, has chosen to help the UVC Brugmann/ CHU Brugmann, the hospital near the symbol of all Belgians. To expand this initiative, the Atomium is looking for food donations.

The goal is to deliver 150 meals (Wednesdays and Fridays) to Brugmann Hospital twice a week. For this occasion, the Atomium has initiated a collaboration with caterers Tanocook and Les Frères Debekker.

In order to guarantee food supply and extend the initiative, the Atomium invites producers and suppliers to donate meat, vegetables and fruit, pasta and rice, as well as packaging (aluminum and plastic), labels, etc.

Is it possible to order something from the Atomium shop ?

It is still possible to order from our shop. However, shipments will not be carried out until our offices are physically reopened (what needs to happen before the reopening to the public).

Is it possible to organize an event at the foot of the Atomium?

We are aware of the symbolic value of the Atomium and the affection showed by many Belgians. And we are grateful for that.

However, the esplanade at the foot of the Atomium is a private space and it is important that everyone respects the rules of social distance advocated by the Government. This is why any public demonstration at the foot of the Atomium is strictly prohibited and, in general, cannot be organized without the explicit consent of its Directors.
