Tintin Flea Market
The 7th flea market that is entirely dedicated is set to go ahead on 20 May 2012 around the Hergé Museum in Louvain-la-Neuve. Tintinologists will be delighted to browse the tonnes of books, items, originals, posters, figurines, games, toys and documents on offer. Do not miss it!

Port of Antwerp
Hergé drew on the Port of Antwerp as a direct source of inspiration for his pencil sketches of the quayside where the Karaboudjan is moored in The Crab with the Golden Claws.

The village of Moulinsart owes its name to Sart-Moulin, a hamlet in the province of Walloon Brabant close to Braine-l’Alleud, not far from where Hergé lived. The country landscapes at the end of The Secret of the Unicorn are a living testimony to the atmosphere of Walloon Brabant and its woodlands.

Moriensart Tower
In 1958, Hergé immortalised Moriensart Tower that is 22 metres in height. A reproduction is on display inside the guardroom. This tower is situated not far from Hergé’s former home in Céroux-Mousty.

Hergé’s home in Céroux-Mousty
Hergé came to live in Céroux-Mousty in 1953. The sceneries of the local area would inspire him for the landscapes in The Calculus Affair and The Castafiore Emerald. In tribute to the artist, a street of the hamlet now carries his name.
