Boutique Tintin, Brussels

Boutique Tintin, Brussels

Created by Belgian cartoonist Georges Remi, known by his pen name Hergé, The Adventures of Tintin was one of the most popular European comics in the 20th century, published in more than 70 languages worldwide and adapted for radio, TV, theater, and cinema. Today, the Tintin series is as much part of the Belgian heritage as Victor Horta's architectural marvels or Rene Magritte’s famous paintings.

For those fond of comics and the Tintin series in particular, the Tintin boutique in Grand Place is a definite must-visit place. Located half a block from the square, it is very easy to find and is packed with loads of the famous comic publications in dozens of languages, various prints, bags, t-shirts, rugs, watches, magnets, figurines and many other Tintin-themed merchandise. A lovely small shop with lovely objects that are now quite rare, it will make happy every child and some adults, too, bringing back all the good memories from one's childhood.

Tip:
You may also want to visit a new Galerie Tintin at 35, Place du Grand Sablon.

Mon: 12-6pm; Tue-Sat: 10am-6pm; Sun: 11am-5pm
