Let’s face it, this is the kind of attraction that make no sense. It is small. It is overcrowded. It was nothing to see. You can there just to take a photo and say that you saw it but afterwards you can leave. But not without trying a nice waffle since in that street you have plenty good options. In... More

Nooooo, way. I totally thought that it was just a little taste of what we were looking for. We kept walking and looking for it. The one in the airport is bigger. Crazy. Enjoyed the hardrock hotel was much cooler!,

When we went on a hop on hop off bus, we heard about the Manikin Pis and it was said that the kind even made special clothing to dress him. So in my mind I thought it was a grand statue and monument, when i was getting near it I saw a huge crowed of people and when I came... More

When I arrived at the train station I went to the information center and asked where Manneken Pis would be. They had directions printed out for people, because I think this might be the most famous thing in Belgium. It is small and only takes a minute or two to look at. Some people say the kid saved Brussels and... More

Well this was about as interesting as the last time I saw it some 15 years ago. The most interesting thing is observing the scores of tourists around it at all hours of the day and night snapping away - most would only end up with photos of other holiday makers... Just don't understand it.

Meh. I've been lucky enough to go to Brussels a few times. Just don't bother with this! I took my girlfriend as she hadn't been to Brussels before. Actually accidentally walked past the statue. "It's tiny!", she said... Do not guess what the fuss is about. If you want to see statues, go and look at St Leopold and his... More

When I saw this when I first moved to Brussels temporarily, I wasn't prepared for its size - it's tiny! I only realised I was here by the name of the chocolate shop next to it, and the hoards of tourists. The different clothes do give it a bit more interest, though,

I have no idea who they were but a local group was just finishing their special event, filling Beer mugs from, ah, the Manneken Pis. It was the last Saturday in March and there was a band, men with splendid mustaches and beer delivered from the statue. The various stories behind this boys actions are touching or amusing and the...

This is truly a unique, interesting attraction in the heart of Brussels. It's something I wanted to see going there, but sorry to say, it was a bit of a let down. The statue is actually quite small, and given the MASSIVE crowds, can be hard to see. Best to be taller here and/or have good zoom on your camera's... More

This is statue of the legend boy who pee in the park. This statue is very famous all around the world. And it is a worth trip just to take a look at it. It is usually very crowded, so if you want to take picture, it is better to use long lens camera.
