Belgian Comic Strip Center

17Nov

Besides chocolat and beer, Belgium is also known for their comic strip creators and heroes.

With more than 700 comic strip authors, Belgium has more comic strip artists per square kilometre than any other country in the world!

Being the land of the Smurfs, Lucky Luke and Tintin it is no surprise that there exists The Belgian Comic Strip Centre.

Located in an art nouveau masterpiece designed by Victor Horta and just a few steps away from Grand’Place and the Royal district, this unique museum depicts the stages of putting together a comic strip as well as wonderful displays of cartoon art form artists around the world and of course Belgium’s most famous cartoonists.

The regularly renewed permanent exhibitions and a diversified programme of temporary exhibitions enable visitors to discover the countless aspects of comics art.

If you come to visit the Belgian Comic Strip Center, you will witness the unusual marriage of the Ninth Art and Art Nouveau, two artistic forms of expression which have always been particularly cherished in Brussels

With its 4.200 m² of permanent and temporary exhibitions and more than 200.000 visitors a year, in no time this impressive museum became one of the main attractions of Brussels and will seduce you in many ways.

The museum opens every day from 10 am to 6 pm.

For more information, our staff will be happy to help you, or you can always visit their website.

Aux Beaumes de Venise

17Nov

The name of  the restaurant is related to: « the baumes of venice » , a delicious soft white muscatel wine . In contrast of what the name could suggest,  the wine isn’t from venice, but from a village in the vaucluse (south of france) , called baumes de venise.

This wine also exists in red and suits particularly well to the dishes the chef prepares in the restaurant.

Aux Beaumes de Venise is an elegant, Parisian brasserie-styled restaurant with a warm and friendly setting in Ixelles, close to place Brugmann.

With its veranda and little garden, it is the perfect spot for a dinner together. It serves refined, seasonal French cuisine, prepared by the chef and accompanied by the wines recommended by his wife.
With 15 years of experience and mentions in the Michelin and Delta Guides, Sabine, Abdel Bouassab and their team deliver gastronomic French cuisine for the most demanding palates.

A surprising list of wines has been selected to accompany the dishes by friend and « first sommelier of Belgium » Yves Catulle.

Their menu changes each month.
It is open from Tuesday to Saturday, lunchtime and evening.
More information is available by our staff, or visit their website (in french only).
