It's not really easy to find. A tiny fountain and tiny bronze statue (the height of the boy is at most 50 cm FYI). If you expect to find it somewhere around the Grand Palace, then it'll take some effort to find it (the Manneken Pis is a few streets away). I mean I know the story about it etc.... More

I did not understand what was all the fuss about this little statue until...... I went to the restaurant across from "little" Mr. Mannekin Pis and there you can find out what this tiny "little boy" is really all about. All the stories are a myth - a "hint" of the truth lies in the restaurant with all the puppets.... More

This is a tiny little fountain so I hope you have zoom on your camera. It is silly from the plethora of legends about it to the random outfits it can be dressed in. Look carefully or you will miss it but who doesn't want to share the mad humour of a naughty peeing boy? A must see to rove... More

Despite it's relatively low rating on Tripadvisor, if you go to any souvenir shop in Brussels, it will be probably on of the most popular symbols. Actually, even a lot of shops and restaurants use replicas to decorate, so it seems to be popular in Brussels itself. And if you to see the famous boy, you'll quickly learn that, first,... More

Locating and visiting Manneken Pis was a bit of an ordeal on our own. Frankly after we located and found it, the size of the monument belied the expectations I had! Nevertheless it was fun. The walk through the narrow streets to reach the place was interesting as well as the Bagels stall right next to it selling the famous... More

5 minutes max here depending on how many selfies you plan on taking. Worth the walk if you're near Lombard street or the Grot markt; it's kind of like going to Paris without seeing the Eiffel tower... but not really. Great for a cute pic. Many chocolate shops here as well; I recommend Planete Chocolat which is back on the... More

This wasn't on my itinerary list for Brussels, but we ended up passing by when looking for a pub we were after one evening and I still don't get what the fuss is about with this. It's iconic for Brussels I know and therefore "a must see" for some people, but I don't think you're missing out if not. The... More

This is the funniest monument I've ever seen. It's not very big, but common' a boy pissing as one of the most iconic monuments in Brussels! Incredible.
