Going to Brussels? you need to see the Manneken Pis, however, if you do not have any details, you might be quite disappointed as it is very small statue, almost hidden in the corner. I would have missed if the crowd of people would not stand there.

This little fellow, and the statue is smaller than you might expect, is a big symbol of Brussels. You can find him of postcards, fridge magnets, bottle openers and can even take home a small scale version! EVERYONE takes a photo of the little statue and we were no exception however the Manneken Pis is probably one of those sites... More

Well, its a little statue of a little boy peeing, and eventually he'd be wearing some clothes. The surroundings are pretty nice still, take the opportunity to drink some hot chocolate or to eat some chocolate waffles!

Just down the narrow street from our B&B (Taptoe 11) is this strange little sight - seems to attract as many visitors as Rome fountains...search me why. The whole world wants to be photographed in front of it!

A very small statue doing you know what.... I never realised how small it is till I saw it. Hardly any space around it to stand if you are in a group. So you cross the street and stand on the other side and take photos. Didnt see him in the costume. The smell of waffles and chocolate is what... More

What a small statue and all the big fuss!!! But to be honest, it was a very charming statue to see and the day I was there, he was dressed in army gear to honour WWI activities. Well worth seeing. Apparently this little boy has lots of outfits.....

Go ahead, you're going to see it anyway. When I saw the statue for the first time, I actually laughed out loud. This is IT?! It's a tiny little fountain, the statue maybe 60 cm tall. He changes costumes frequently, some costumes pretty funny. But it's a cool place to visit, just to stand back a little and watch the... More

If you are walking in the area it's good to include Manneken Pis in your route. There many famous waffle and chocolate shops in the area, that were more interesting than the statue for me and my wife! We bought a few chocolate bars that were very delicious. As others wrote it's not that interesting. The statue is not recommended... More

Anyone who visits Brussels will wish to see the Manneken Pis.This attraction is located in a street just off the Grand Place (south side), so is easy to find. There isn’t really much to say; it’s a bronze statute with a water feature, so it is unlikely you will be left awe struck. However, it is dressed up in various... More
