Brussels comics walk : Belgium

In my last visit to Brussels for the 2017 museum night I took the next morning to do the Brussels comic route and explore around the city looking for comics murals. What a neat project. It started in the early 1990s and by now the city collection offers no less than 50 murals on various building all around Brussels. You’ll be able to find Tintin, Asterix, and many other classics, blown up to a building size.

 

Shall we talk a walk around Brussels and find some murals?

Since you’re already exploring Brussels, probably lots of lovely spots in the area surrounding the murals (though be mindful, that Brussels also has less attractive areas)…

If you’re staying in Brussels for more than a quick visit, this could be a fun thing to do to get to know the city better.
