About
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.

Really rather small, and I can imagine that many tourists are a bit dissapointed and had bigger expectations, but it is part of the folklore.

Its a small famous statue. Fun to see once but likely you will pass it many times. Each time makes it more boring and you realise, its just a small statue.

Tiny little statue of a child peeing into a fountain. A good opportunity to laugh at yourself and all the other tourist taking pictures. Walk by and check it off the list.

Way too many tourists for a statue that's barely 60cm tall. Not worth the 200 meter detour from the grand place. This manneken is surrounded by heaps of tourists and very expensive gift shops.

The bronze statue of Brussels’ famous little boy attracts many visitors and is located close to the Grand Place. Cute photo

I know that is the translation but that is about it! You would not cross over the road to view it but as it is an iconic Brussels work of art you can walk past and tick it off your list. The nearby shops are...More
