The Mural is close to Mannekin Pis which is a Brussels icon, however, Tintin is a Belgian icon and great to see he is prominent close to Mannekin Pis.

Saw a few walls over three days while walking about to see other things in city. Murals are well done and fun to spot. Great opportunity to take pictures and build a collection too. If you want to see all, download a map guide especially for the murals and plan a route in advance. Ideal for kids and adults who... More

In fact the whole of the comic walk around the Grand Place is a unique exprerience and an excellent example of how people can look after their cities and give them high artistic sense!

These murals are a great addition to an already charming city. They are large and very well done. Even though not the easiest to find the main one, look them online and you find there is a walking map and self-guided tour to them all throughout the city.

Had to look around a bit to find it. Found it amusing that locals had no clue about Tintin! Not really a mural painting. It's more of a graffiti. If you are a Tintin fan, you'll appreciate it as a validation that you are in his homeland.

When you are tired of visiting all of these brussel's museums, try to find all of the Tintin murals! You will have a lot of fun trying to search all of them... You will be really surpriced by the wall of giraffe pattern!:)

I came across the Tintin mural by accident and only later discovered that it was part of a series. Helped by the map, I then spent the next couple of days seeing as many of them as I could. Not only did I get to see lots of great art but that also took me to interesting parts of the... More

If we had known there were 30 murals to see we would have gone on the mural walk but then time was not on our side. At least we saw one! Love street art.

This was this beautiful wall made beautiful by the art on it. We saw many families and couples alike visiting it . The murals were jaw droppingly good. The colors were bright, vivid amd very attractive. It was a treat for the eyes.

I could have walked right past it, just like the Manquine De Pisse, very uneventful for me. There is so much more interesting sites and beauty in Brussels that this is insignificant somehow.
