The Comic Book Route in Brussels is a path that takes you along several walls and buildings throughout the inner city of Brussels as well as the neighborhoods of Laeken and Auderghem, where large murals of some of the most popular characters of Franco-Belgian comics are painted – Tintin, Smurf, Asterix, Lucky Luke, Gaston, Gil Jourdan and more. The project, which began in 1991, was initiated by the local authorities in collaboration with the Belgian Comic Strip Center to celebrate Belgium’s long history and association with comic strips.

Comic strips are the pride of Belgium. It is the one country where comic strips have grown from a popular medium into an art in its own right. Indeed, with more than 700 comic strip authors, Belgium has more comic strip artists per square kilometer than any other country in the world. In the Belgian capital, you can find dozens of specialized shops, statues, wall paintings, bars and museums dedicated to the art. Nowhere else in this world are comics so strongly rooted in reality and in people's imagination.
