This attraction must mean more to the local people after years of hearing about it from my Belgian mother I did find it a bit disappointing. Nonetheless he is a symbol of Brussels and the story is bigger than the reality as with a lot of things

Enjoyed seeing this as it seems to be the "big" thing to do and see. Lots of people were taking pictures around it. We liked the little outfit. Nice treat in Belgium.

Hmmm...rather over rated, but crowds of people can almost always be found checking him out. He is dressed in a variety of outfits, changed on a regular basis. Biggest impression is how small this little guy is, but he is a symbol of Brussels so worth a photo or two.

Well known sculpture but the Manneken Pis 61 cm tall bronze sculpture is certainly not worth a special detour.

The incredible amount of tourists assembling at this mini statue is worth an extra look. How they react, how they giggle, equals lots of university lessons in psychology and ethnology.. Same goes for the souvenir shops around the place where tasteful souvenirs like Manneken Pis cork-screws and ties are offered. If you are lucky to be there at a special... More

This is the top icon of Brussels much like the Eiffel Tower is to Paris.Most tourists are disappointed that the size of this statue is so small and its enclosure too. On a more serious note, the size of the statue is secondary.This is a must visit attraction as it is the personification of Brussels and is reproduced in so... More
