This painting show Tin Tin, Captain Haddok and Snowy running down some stairs. This is a famous comic review of Hergè. This painting is closer to Mennekenpis downtown Bruxelles.

If you walk around the old city center you can find some nice paintings of the famous cartoon Tintin on the walls. Very cool :)

Lots of Tintin paintings at Stockel Metro. Well worth the visit, even if you are not a Tintin fan. Lots of murals from different Tintin taken from comics from around the world.

We didn't purposely seek out the murals during our time in Brussels but it was nice to come across them whilst walking around the city.

A nice touch - explained with obvious pride by our well-informed tour guide - this is just one of many murals devised and maintained by the municipal authority since the seventies when many streets were remodelled............

Worth a look and good photo op, not the end of the world if you miss it. However as I live in the Banksy capital maybe I am used to good street art!

We were surprised and fascinated by the amount of artwork n the sides of buildings (especially as they were not graffitied). Really unique and brought a smile to our face as we tried to spot them
