Nicknamed "Brussel's Oldest Citizen," this bronze statue of a little boy and a fountain was designed by Jerome Duquesnoy in 1619, and has become a familiar (and irreverent) symbol of the city.

The statue is tiny and wall mounted at the corner of two small streets. It was decorated for Chinese New Year when we saw it. Despite the crowd surrounding it I could have walked past without noticing it. I guess its tradition is its draw.

Visiting the Manneken Pis was very disappointing!! The statue is very small compared to what we imagined from the multiple pictures you can find everywhere. There are crowds of tourists in front of it which makes it almost impossible to even get a proper picture of it. Very famous among locals it is really nothing special to see...

Very interesting to see, not too far of a walk if you're staying in the Grand Place area. Small statue but we knew that already. The history of it is very interesting

No reason to visit this little ugly unartistic statue of urinating underage fat boy. Don't waste your time. Brussel is beautiful. Manneken Pis isn't.

Small statue/fountain that for some reason attracts a lot of tourists. I guess it is worth seeing for 2 minutes if you are walking by.

I should have done the Viva Brussels Free Walking Tour there. Then, maybe I would appreciate more the things I've seen, such as this statue. For me it is a complete mistery of why people are so attracted to it. FTR Jeanneke pis is much more unique!

Manneken pis is the must-see statue when visiting Brussels. It is linked to the history of Belgium's and Europe's capital city.

It's a must visit attraction, great location, next to a fantastic place for Belgium beer, you may also be lucky enough to see the Manneken dressed up which is a little bit for fun. If you like chocolate this is where most of the choc shops are. Certainly worth a visit and then a few beers at the place opposite.
