Brussels is widely acknowledged to be the capital of the cartoon strip. Indeed, this was where Tintin was created in 1929 with the cartoon stories that have been translated into over 100 languages. The idea of decorating the city's blank walls was devised in 1991, as part of a renovation programme for certain districts and to convert dull expanses of wall into attractive murals. Since that time artworks have proliferated on the city's walls. Brussels currently has around fifty comic strip frescoes (including ten or so in Laeken). Our itinerary will take in characters such as Tintin, Gaston Lagafffe, Ric Hochet, Blake and Mortimer, Lucky Luke and many more.... The walk will stray a little from the centre to explore the Senne district, where there are also some very fine walls to see.
