Quite an insignificant statue just around the city centre, but is a beloved kid with the locals. If you are lucky you will be there on one of those days when he is dressed in a theme like a fancy dress party.

The Manneken Pis is a tourist must see and great spot for a photo. However, at the same time it is nothing special, just a statue/fountain of a boy relieving himself. Still, it is worth seeing and taking the photo. It is a worthwhile detour from the Grand Place and can be experienced is a just a few minutes.

A 40cm high bronze statue of a baby pissing into a fountain. That is all this is. Sure, if you're in the area its probably worth a quick look, but really, unless you are passionate about pissing baby sculptures, there is no attraction here.

This small cherub is a relief as he is relieving himself! A landmark not to be missed and near to the Grand Place

Opportunity to get clicked. When we visited the status was dressed up looking a different. Lots of crowd.

believe what others say - this is all hype and nothing more! the Mannekin Pis was so small that I initially passed by it without noticing and totally missed it! the tiny fountain is also always surrounded by tourists, so it's really hard to see and to take pictures.

This is one of life's disappointments. Expected a much larger statue. After a long walk to find this little chap I was sad to find that he was so small.
