The Bettemburg comic strip with Luxembourg's greatest hero

Text: Lucien Czuga
Illustrator: Andy Genen

Everyone knows the most famous inhabitant of Bettemburg.

He is almost 10 meters tall and lives in the fairy tale park.

Yes, that’s right, it’s the giant. The colossus with the red cap, the long brown boots, the light blue sweater and the checkered pants. He is the trademark of the « Parc Merveilleux », which was opened in 1955.

The new comic strip « In the giant’s footsteps » was created around this striking figure as part of « ESCH2022 – European Capital of Culture » based on an idea from the ASBL « Les Trésors de la BD ».

The comic is available in three languages (LU, FR, EN) in stores, as well as in the Parc Merveilleux and in the social bookshop « de Bicherkueb », rue de la Gare, Bettemburg.
