In Charleroi, children have as much fun as their parents! Discover the city together through its comic book characters, museums and extraordinary visits.
In the city centre
Did you know that Charleroi is the Walloon comic book capital? It was here that Dupuis publishers launched the "Journal Spirou" which featured heroes like Gaston Lagaffe, Lucky Luke, The Smurfs, Marsupilami or Boule and Bill.
What makes Charleroi fun is the fact that you will come across these comic book characters all over the city: Marsupilami welcomes visitors who arrive in Charleroi on the motorway.
Fantasio is taking a photogrpah of Spirou and his faithful squirrel companion, Spip on the roundabout on avenue Michel. Boule and Bill greet passers-by close to the Stade du Pays de Charleroi.
