Tintin Walk Brussels
Georges Prosper Remi, better known under the name of Hergé, was born in Brussels. He is the famous author of the Tintin comic strips.
The Adventures of Tintin is one of the most famous comic strips in the world.
More than 200 million copies have been sold in the world and the comic strip has been translated into dozens of languages.
Hergé drew his inspiration from many places in Brussels and you will find the famous “Jeu de Balle” Place in Steven Spielberg’s movie but also le "Théâtre de la Monnaie”, the Jubilee Park or the Brussels Park.
Since October, 21 2001, a copper statute of Tintin and Milou is located in the Sablon district in homage to Hergé. You will also see Tintin frescos in the “Rue de l’Etuve”, at the Bruxelles-Midi station and in Stockel, where 140 characters from the comic strips are represented.
Don’t miss the Tintin shop and the “Lombard” also known as the “Tintin Building”.
You will also enjoy visiting the Hergé Museum or the Belgian Comic Strip Centre!
