Brussels Comic Tour

Discover the history behind "bandé dessinée", the ninth art, in the Belgian capital with this Brussels Comic Tour. Explore the urban vignettes of the city and wander past famous characters.

Brussels Comic Tour

We'll meet at 10.30 am on the Grand Place to start our three-hour walking tour of the most famous comic strip buildings in Brussels.

The first mural will be on rue de l'Étuve, Tintin, Snowy and Captain Haddock coming down some stairs. Hergé's endearing characters leave the vignettes of his illustrated adventure "The Calculus Affair". It seems that they go down to visit the sculpture of the Manneken Pis, located a few metres away.

Once we've seen the famous child, we'll discover a wall with the characters of Olivier Rameau, the comic book created by the Belgian cartoonist Dany. Shortly afterwards we'll be surprised by some peculiar columns, The Passage, the iconic mural of Schuiten.

Some bandits will interrupt our walk in the rue de la Buanderie, so don't panic! It's the Dalton brothers being chased by Lucky Luke, Morris' most famous comic book character. On this same street, we shouldn't be afraid of some crazy warriors running towards us either. This is Asterix and Obelix trying to escape from a wall.

We'll also visit the murals of famous comic book artists Frank Pé, Victor Sackville and Marc Sleen, among others, and take a brief look at the work of these cartoonists next to the Musée du Comique in Brussels. The tour will end at the Smurf statue, located three minutes from the Grand Place.
