A small statue with lots of people taking pictures. While in the area go and visit Poechenellekelder, the bar opposite. Much more interesting.

You will inevitably stumble on it anyhow since it is so centrally located within most tourist pathways from one point to another. It is always mentioned as such an icon of Brussels and I guess it must be. But there are many other beautiful sights to see. It is just a statue/fountain.

Seeing Manneken Pis is a must if you are in Brussels because it is a pretty funny statute. However, it is a very small statue and can be seen in less than 1 minute, get a picture and then go.

A must see if you are in the area but it isn't anything special. I think of it in the same way as the mins Lisa, something that you cannot pass up seeing, but it is a bit f a disappointment once there.

Well, this is not quite an outstanding atraction but it is definitely a symbol of the town, so you gotta see it. Some people get frustrated when they get there and face an small piece of bronze "leaking" water but it can be quite fun depending on when you go there because in many times the Manekin is dressed in...

Well, I was excited. Heard a lot, but I didn't expect the statue to be very small and it's not exactly visible. Thus, it took me quite some time to find it. I think it's because my expectation was quite high lol. But nevertheless, if you're coming to Brussel, at least you need to take a pic with the statue... More

Okay, let's be honest - this is a silly little fountain on a side street off the Grand Place. But for some reason I thought it was adorable! And I loved the fact that they dress him up in different outfits every now and then. Don't plan hours around seeing this, but there are plenty of little shops, waffle stands... More

We took a long time to find it (it is really hidden off of the main square) and it was a totally waste of our time in the city. We were shocked at the crowds around it and why it is so popular to look at. The statue is really very small and not special in anyway. Worth a picture... More
