Cute little attraction, nice to see people turning up for this little guy. Not inconvenient to walk by, so worth a visit.

We went on a quest to find this statue on our last morning in the City. If it were not for the flocks of people taking photos, it would be very inconspicuous. Located at the corner of a side street and being barely bigger than a kid's doll, I didn't really see why this is such an attraction. It sells... More

As everyone else says it really is quite small! Tucked away a few hundred meters from Grand Place but still near shops is this funny little fountain statue of a boy peeing. It seems odd to go and hunt this down but it is a must do to snap a picture before or after grabbing a waffle to eat.

It is a small statue in a lane close to Grand Place. We expected it to bigger and interesting because of icon stature in Brussels but on that account it was a disappointment. It is definitely over rated.

A small bronze statue thought to represent the "irreverent spirit" of Brussels. Whatever, it is one of the most visited attractions in Brussels, without which your Brussels trip wouldn't be complete. Although totally uninteresting and small in scale, this should be on your track (it stands in central area), at least for the sake of fame it has.

walk around to find this statue, and after i found it, i didnt expect the statue was quite small. They do dress up this statue once a while with different dress code all the time. Tips: try the waffle beside this place, its delicious and cheap. Godiva, Leonidas chocolates are surrounding and you can buy souvenirs, and manneken pis chocolate... More

Nothing else than a ridiculous statue lost in the corner of a street. Nothing to see here. Move along please. There's so much more interesting things to do in this city so please skip this "thing"!

This famous statue is surprisingly small and on a side street of the Grand Place. We had heard that he is often dressed up, but not on the day we were there. It's neat to say that we saw it, but if we had missed it, no big deal.

I was expecting more for one of the Brussels icons. It was easy to find it (too many people around).

So, I had heard that Manneken Pis was smaller than one would expect, and it was- even moreso. When I approached it- easy to spot because of the huge crowd, two men were basically performing a painful looking medical procedure on the poor kid-- sticking a long needle into you-know-where. I guess there was a blockage in the stream. Every... More
