It was really funny to come to this mural by accident from the Grand Place. I must have forgotten Tintin was Belgian. Being a Tintin fan I stopped and took my time following the mural. I saw it from afar and went at once for a glance. The shops offer several Tintin souvenirs as well.

I was so happy to see the mural painting of Tintin climbing down the stairs when we were walking from Grand Place towards the Mannequin Pis. It's not a huge wall but lovely enough for me as I grew up with Tintin comics. You might miss it though, if you walk with your eyes on the ground. Always look up... More

Brussels is the capital of comics, so you will see a lot of murals and statues of comic characters during your visit. As the reporter Tintin is ofcourse one of the most popular, there are several wall paintings by Hergé . The most well-known mural of Tintin is in the Rue de L’Étuve, but if you are a fan or... More

If you're a TinTin fan, you'll find many paintings and souvenirs about this famous Belgian reporter in Brussels. All you need to do is looking carefully at buildings and walls to them everywhere! TinTin souvenirs are also available in many shops, but I personally didn't like them that much. They are not designed nicely and there are not many options.... More

Halfway between the Grand Place and Mannequin Pis is the Tin Tin wall mural. Located amongst several souvenir shops, the three story tall mural of Tin Tin can be seen from a block away. This mural was a navigation point on The Amazing Race Season 19 Episode 11. Tin Tin is one of the most famous comic strips in the... More

Yet another free thing to do in Brussels. We picked up a tin tin trail map in one of the local pubs which guided you to all the tin tin art in and surrounding the city. Such detailed and well maintained pieces of art. A fun way of seeing the city

There is a Tintin trail that you can follow if you really want to but keeping a wary eye out is probably enough. There is usually a reason why they are placed where they are. For example, Tintin hand in hand with a male friend is on a corner of one of the gay areas.

We really enjoyed spotting all of the murals as we walked around the town. Some were large and obvious but there were some other smaller dashes of colour on mailboxes, building fronts that are not quite as large as the most distinctive Tin Tin one near Mannekin Pis.

Very cute and creative, nice to see. Not much effort needed to spot them which is good as no thine wasted. Probably a good idea to visit the Tintin museum if time permits!
