TintinMovie.org is coming to Belgium

Between the 30th September and the 6th October TintinMovie.org (i.e. me, Chris) will be visiting the fine country of Belgium with my partner. We will be visiting a lot of Tintin related sites including the Comic Museum in Brussels, Cinquantenaire Museum (home to the statue that inspired The Broken Ear), the flea market from the start of The Secret of the Unicorn and few non-Tintin related places such as Waterloo.

Of course we will be visiting the Herge Museum and we invite everyone to join us.

Our plan is to visit the museum on Saturday 3rd October, probably around 11am. If any fellow Tintin fans would like to visit the museum with us, we would be delighted to meet you. Afterwards, we will be visiting bars either in Louvain-La-Neuve or back in Brussels.

I will post more details in a couple of soon but if would like to join us on our visit, please comment below. If anyone outside Belgium wants to join us, this map of our Brussels trip may be of help.

    I was looking your google map for the trip.
    The correct location of the flea market (Secret of the Unicorn)
    is Place du Jeu de Balle
    50°50’12.70″N,4°20’43.56″E
    Exact spot where Tintin was standing 😉
    The flea market in Waterloo (open on Sunday morning) as nothing to do with the story.

      @Tom – It would be great to see you there.

      @Charlie – Thanks for the information on the Place du Jeu de Balle. The Waterloo flea market is on the map because we are planning to visit there. Not everything we are planning to do is Tintin related 🙂
