comic strips
10 km | 2 hours
summary of the tour – theme
Brussels and Belgium are internationally known thanks to their comic strips authors. A glance through the
comic strips frescos downtown enables re-discovering it in a different way, playful enough. These comic
strips walls aim at making certain quarters that are undergoing transformation, more beautiful as well.
