In Detail

 

Cross land or sea for an exclusive Brussels adventure with Tintin, Snowy and Captain Haddock. Walk in the footsteps of Belgium’s national hero and follow the Tintin trail!  No detective skills are required but there is much to report with a trusty guide close at hand.

Discover locations that act as a backdrop in many escapades, as well as the city’s Tintin murals. One  features an incredible life size fresco of the fearless trio.  Other highlights include the stylish Théâtre Royal des Galeries, where Hergé produced Tintin in India.

Move on to the Belgian Centre for Comic Strip Art - a superb building that pays homage to the Adventures of Tintin . Then explore the flea market of Jeu de Balle. This provided Hergé with inspiration for the second-hand market featured in The Secret of the Unicorn. Don’t turn back; continue on to the Hergé Museum, a treasure trove of original artwork and source material that brought Tintin to life.
