Brussels is widely acknowledged as the capital of the comic strip. Indeed, this was where Tintin was created in 1929, with his adventures now 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 neighbourhoods, and to convert bland expanses of wall into attractive murals. Since then, artworks have blossomed on the city's walls. Brussels currently has around fifty comic strip murals (including around ten in Laeken). Our route will take in characters such as Tintin, Gaston Lagafffe, 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.
