This webcam is on the mast of the Atomium in Brussels, overlooking the Heysel Plateau.


The webcam is at an altitude of more than 102 meter (the height of the Atomium) [plan]. Anyone using internet can control the webcam with a zoom of 26x, for a limited period.

The webcam offers a view of 345° (because of the mast) and thus has a great view on the Heysel: top view of the Atomium, Brussels Expo, Bruparck,... Some important buildings in the city itself can also be seen, like the Royal Palace.

The Internet surfers can control the webcam for 1 minute. They can also steer it or perform a zoom.

Important: due to the massive interest in this webcam, it is possible that at crowded moments the image may fail to display or that you will have to wait before manoeuvring the camera. Sometimes the flag on the Atomium can be in front of the image. This could not be avoided while placing the camera.
