Què farem?

As you might not know Belgium is not only famous for its waffles, beers and chocolate but also for being the cradle of the 9th Art : comics (know as "BD" in French). Never heard of Tintin, The Smurfs, Lucky Luke, Astérix, ... ? To commemorate the link between Belgium and comics, 39 murals have been painted throughout Brussels' center since the 90's (and a few more a bit outside of it).

So together we will discover Brussels’ historical center throughout the visit of most of those comics murals/painting. I will give you some short explanations on each of them and will answer your questions if you are curious on the subject. Of course there will be many other points of attention along the way like buildings, squares,... and I will give you my inner opinion and some tips for your next visits (bars, restaurants, museums...) .

As the tour is not a 4 hours tour, please don't expect thorough long historical explanations on each buildings that we will encounter. It's not a historical tour, others do that better than I could :-) The point of this experience is to show you -through those murals- some streets and neighborhoods you probably would not have visited on your own...

Belgian, from Brussels, in love with my city and comics enthusiast since my childhood. I own a respectable size collection of classic and recent comics and visit regularly exhibitions. Before proposing Airbnb experiences I was already regularly showing Brussels around to my international friends and to my couchsurfing guests. I'm not a city historian so the visit will be focused on the comics murals decorating the walls of Brussels but, as I have been living here forever, I will also show you some great buildings and give you some tips for your trip in Brussel

On aniràs?

Main streets, small side streets, dead ends,... all the 39 murals are spread inside Brussels' center but in different neighborhoods, some of which you probably would not have visited on your own :-)

Expérience très sympa et plein d’anecdotes.Cedric connaît bien sa ville et outre les fresques nous apporte des infos sur des bâtiments croisés sur le chemin. Nous recommandons cette expérience bruxelloise.

Cedric is very knowledgable and makes this experience more than a simple walking tour to view comic street art, we had a great time!

Cedric’s tour was a great way to spend 2 and a half hours. We got to see a lot of the comic murals around Brussels and he had a wealth of knowledge about the different comics and the murals themselves. While we would have been able to go around and see all the murals ourselves, we wouldn’t have had the personal touch with his explanations and stories. I recommend this tour to anyone with any interest in these murals you’ll be seeing around the city!

Merci Cedric! This was a great way to spend an afternoon with Cedric. Easily taking in some of the lesser known parts of Brussels and some genuine local knowledge and engagement. Ok so, you won't see all 39 comic book murals but they're spread all across the Bruxelles area. The ones you do see however, you will gain a deeper understanding of due to Cedric's own collection and passion. The other monuments and parts of the city you'll see, you may not explore independently and will now have reason to understand and appreciate.

Cedric was very knowledgable regarding the comics and the murals in the city. He was able to explain, at length, the stories behind each mural and even brought some comics along with him which was a nice touch! We saw approximately 15 murals on the tour, we were expecting to see more, however didn’t realise how spread out they are across the city! We throughly enjoyed the tour, it took us around parts of Brussels we wouldn’t have seen otherwise and now know a lot more about the comics!
