I liked all the murals that we hunted and took photos of during our trip but really enjoyed this one as who doesn't love Tin Tin! It features TinTin chasing a bad guy with Snowy chasing after. It is a very well done piece of art work.

If you have lots of time, and the weather is fine, it may be worth a few hours of your time to follow the Comic Strip Trail. Otherwise, just take a look at the Tintin Painting. The others are not that impressive afterall.

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............
