Bus tour-walking tour

Bringing Brussels façades to life with comic-strip art (fully booked)

Belgian comic strips are renowned the world over. Their authors and illustrators capture every aspect of Belgian life in their work: the country’s atmosphere and architecture, its folklore, its people’s love of festivities and even its linguistic idiosyncrasies are reflected in the pages of the comic strips they created. Thirty-seven years after Cutts the Butcher closed its doors for good on Hergé’s death, this tour will smurf you right back to the 1950s. As you tour the streets of Brussels, you will rub shoulders with Quick and Flupke, Professor Calculus (or should that be Professor Piccard?), Spike, Suzy, Ambrose and the rest of the gang, plus a whole host of other colourful characters.

In French only.

In cooperation with Brussels Bavard.
