Bande dessinée

The Smurfs, Lucky Luke, the Marsupilami, Tintin, Spirou and Fantasio: Belgium is the main source for comics in Europe. Around 60 % of all books published in this country tell their story visually. Today Japanese mangas dominate the international market, but the Belgian comic characters are still beloved by many people worldwide. It therefore comes as no surprise that the Belgians celebrate them in an own museum, the Centre Belge de la Bande Dessinée.

The building in the northern part of the city center was once designed by famous architect Victor Horta. The comic museum was opened there in 1989 and tells the story of the comic itself, how it started and how it developed. Throughout the museum you can find the characters of Belgian comics, learn more about their worlds and there is also a bookshop, a reading room, and a restaurant.
