A little bit out of the way from the city centre, smaller than i expected, but worth a visit if only to say youve seen it.
We paid a visit to the manneken pis on the day he has his new clothes . This consists of lots of singing and tv crews filming and the best part of all the boy is hooked up to beer kegs and he spurts beer over the cheering crowds from his willie and cups of beer are also offered round.... More
This statue is listed as a "must see" or "must do" but unfortunately it just encourages other travelers to waste their time on it. Anywhere else, the little boy peeing would just be considered part of a fountain. I don't see the fascination with this landmark or why it is even remotely popular.
I didn't know the history behind the statue before I saw it so to me, it was just another statue...no big deal. It's super super small and somewhat hard to see. I reminded me of the Mona Lisa, so small, far back and too many people wanting to get the perfect photo that it made it feel like a waste... More
It's a 400 year old bronze statue (actually 395 years) depicting a young boy peeing. The stories and history behind it are fascinating, as they pertain to the city's clean drinking water, and it is famous site in Brussels. I had to see it. I saw it and took a picture.
I have terrible time to rate Manneken Pis. It is just a small statue of a young boy peeing, but this is probably the most famous site in Brussels, and one of the most iconic statue in the world. Perhaps we have to understand the Belgians. Perhaps it's just a Belgian thing. The Belgians are playful and imaginative people, they... More
Well, you can't be in Brussels without visiting this little guy. On st. Nicholas day it was dressed like st. Nicholas, quite amuzing. On the way from the Grand Place, lots of chocolate and souvenires shops which worth a visit.
One of the 'must see' sights in Brussels. It was ok but more importantly the pub opposite was incredible. Really good atmosphere. Make sure you go there for a drink after seeing the little boy peeing.
5 minutes from the Grand Place, it's a must see i suppose, huge amount of people taking thousand of photograph of the little guy, not that special, after 2 minutes went back to the Grand Place...
This is probably a "must see" when in Brussels, but you will end up wondering why. Just a small statue of a boy taking a piss. However, when significant events are happening in Belgium, they will often dress the statue in costume. It is just a short walk from the Grand Place, so you can do both easily. There is... More
