Art in the station[edit]

Murals on the walls across each of the tracks from the single island platform illustrate more than 140 characters from Hergé's comic The Adventures of Tintin. The sketches for the work were made by the artist himself, just before his death. The figures were drawn by Studio Hergé.[1]


Next to the subway station there is a shopping mall named "Stockel Square" where you can find various shops including clothing, jewellery, food,... and in front of the station there is also a movie theatre "Le New Stockel".
