In the spotlight
Carless Sunday + mobility week
Discover the city as you've never seen it before as food stalls, street perfomers and sometimes eccentric eco-friendly modes of transportation take control of Brussels' usually congested avenues. Bikes can be rented from Pro Velo, who have several outlets throughout the city. Car Free Sunday is part of Mobility Week, which aims to highlight the growing problem of urban traffic and its impact on the environment.

The worlds of Lanfeust
One day, Lanfeust, an apprentice blacksmith living in the magic world of Troy, set off on an initiatory quest after having discovered that he had supernatural powers. Like an UFO, “ Lanfeust de Troy” hit bookshops in 1994. Since then, this comic strip series of heroic fantasy, brimming over with humour and inventiveness, has won over the hearts of several million readers. With the complicity of his script writer and creator, Christophe Arleston, the exhibition at the Belgian Comic Strip Centre proposes to discover in a fun and original way the various universes born of this flagship series.
