Tintin and Brussels
From Friday 24 to Sunday 26 January, the Smurfs will be joining the ice sculpture fun of Brussels Ice Magic for a special weekend that promises to be packed with surprises.
Even though Hergé tried to smooth out some of the unduly glaring Brussels references, there is no doubt that the author derived inspiration from his own everyday life and the world he lived in.
The official Brussels guides are on hand to escort you on a leisurely promenade to the heart of the comic book. This itinerary that criss-crosses the city from one fresco to the next is a rather special key to understanding our city.
