The Start of our Comic Book Strip Trail | Brussels Day 1

Caught up with AmsterdamBerlinPragueViennaBudapestZagrebLjubljanaZurichParis & Luxembourg?



If you think that Brussels is only home to chocolate, waffles and fries, then you're wrong! It's heritage in comics is very clear on almost every corner you turn in its city centre. The Comic Book Strip Trail is a route of over 50 murals depicting a long list of comic book characters and stories, and we've taken it upon ourselves to find them all!


We think it's a great free way to explore the city and hopefully along the way we'll bump into other points of interests. The route will take us all through the centre, plus there is some a little out of the way - so we'll see how we do finding them in the next couple of days.

But for now, here is what we've found so far...
