5.1 "Prof. Bergamotte"

Address: Avenue Delleur 6

Anyone who has read "The Seven Crystal Balls" recognizes this house. Es ist die Villa von Professor Birnbaum (im Original "Bergamotte"). It's the villa of professor Tarragon ("Bergamotte" in french).

The spacious garden is missing and the house is actually a semi-detached. Dennoch entdeckt man genügend Übereinstimmungen. However, you'll find plenty of matches.

Hergé did not have to walk far to make the sketches, because it is just a few hundred yards from his former residence. Das Haus kann nicht besichtigt werden. The house can not be visited.
