When we came back from the Belgian coast (post below) it was dark and while chatting, of course I didn't pay attention and didn't listen to Mrs. GPS either. With the result that I took the wrong exit and suddenly we saw the Atomium, the balls illuminated ! It was at the other end of Brussels, not where we had to go, but it was such a nice surprise ! I had never seen the Atomium by night !
During the day it looks like this. In the balls are a bar, a restaurant and exhibitions.
From far I saw it shining
and of course stopped, got out of the car to take these pictures
There were many people probably for the restaurant, because it is located in the upper ball and you have a beautiful view over Brussels.
