Brussels, comic strip capital

The official Brussels guides are on hand to escort you on a leisurely promenade to the heart of the comic strip. This itinerary that criss-crosses the city from one fresco to the next is a rather special key to understanding our city.
Encounters with the authors: Frank Pé, Roba, Carin, Tibet, Morris, Philippe Geluck, Marc Sleen and Vandersteen, and with the comic strip characters: Boule et Bill (in French – Bollie en Bilie in Dutch), Lucky Luke, the Chat, Ric Hochet, Cubitus, Suske & Wiske in Dutch (Bob & Bobette in French), Nero (in Dutch – Néron in French) and their friends.
This journey of discovery terminates with a delightful visit to the Belgian Comic Strip Centre where you will meet up again with all your favourite characters (to be specifically booked with the CBBD).

Comic Strip Itinerary: Brussels as narrated by the great comic strip authors and heroes

The Comic Strip Itinerary is an exploration of the interaction between artistic expression and an urban setting, a way of approaching the very character of its residents through the personality of the cartoonists and scriptwriters, through the atmosphere of the histories they have depicted. Finally, the itinerary also brings a wholly original way of discovering the city, through some of its most contrasting monuments and quarters. A comic book and a comic strip host handed out at the start of your walk are certain to make your visit an even more pleasurable one!

Brussels Segway: Comic strip

Set out to discover a comic strip route in Brussels on a Segway. The Segway is a fun, ecological and surprisingly easy to use two-wheeled, motorised personal transport machine that is self-balancing and controlled as you stand upright on a treadle. It even makes for a twofold experience: as you drive around on your Segway ably escorted by your dedicated guide, you will be discovering the heroes of our comic strips on painted walls, the historic buildings and monuments and must-see sites that have been depicted by a swathe of comic strip authors in their albums and that make Brussels into the living and breathing capital of the comic strip it is today.
No more than 7 participants per visit. As soon as your registration has been confirmed by the not-for-profit organisation, you will be invited to make payment by transfer ahead of the visit. Segway hire is included in the price.
