Line 6

The Heysel (French) or Heizel (Dutch) Metro Station is one of the metro stations on line 6 (formerly 1A) of the Brussels Metro. It was opened on 5 July 1985 and serves the Heysel area, famous for the 1958 Brussels World Fair, the King Baudouin Stadium (formerly known as the Heysel Stadium) and the Atomium. The Bruparck entertainment park (with among others Mini-Europe, a movie theater, a swimming-pool) and the Brussels Exhibition Hall are also located nearby. Prior to 1998, the station was the western terminus of line 1A (now line 6). The line was expanded to the King Baudouin metro station for the 2000 UEFA European Football Championship. The station is located in the City of Brussels. It offers a connection with tram route 7 as well as bus routes 84 and 88.
