What we`ll show you

Beer, Belgian chocolate, beautiful buildings – there are many reasons to visit Brussels, but did you know the urban art scene is one of them? From Tintin to lesser-known heroes like Victor Sackville, comic book murals cover the facades of several buildings in Brussels.

On a virtual tour with a local guide, you’ll go on a hunt for some of these artistic gems. You’ll stumble across larger-than-life renderings of Monsieur Jean and Olivier Rameau – characters you may not have heard of, but who have contributed to the city’s rich comic book history. See the world-famous Tintin Comic Mural on the side of a gift shop, and Le Passage, a picture of a parallel world. 

By the time you reach the murals of Victor Sackville and Ric Hochet, titular characters from two famous local comics, you’ll have an intimate understanding of how comic books have contributed to Brussels’ culture.
