Access by car

The Atomium does not have private or guarded parking facilities.
The parking around the Atomium are not ours and are not guarded. For that reason, we recommend our visitors observe the most basic caution when parking their vehicles by making sure to lock them and not to leave any visible objects behind.
From 1 January 2018, the Brussels Capital Region became a low emissions zone (LEZ). If you have come by car or van, check whether your vehicle is allowed to drive within the LEZ. If you do not meet the conditions, we would remind you that there are park and ride facilities on the outskirts of Brussels and alternatives to the car.
Thank you for contributing to the regional effort to improve air quality!
