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.

This statue is funny but you will have seen many photos of it and maybe some larger replicas outside shops etc so the real thing is a bit 'meh'. Still, you can't really not go see it as it's so close to the Grand Place.

Wow. It's a statue of a young boy peeing. I'm not sure why it's so popular, but it is. There are always tons of tourists around. It is just a small statue. We were more interested in the excellent bar across the street.

I visited manneken pis because it is an icon of the city, but to be honest I found this statue quite normal, maybe the history behind is the interesting fact. It is always full of tourists as well.

Im a little disapointed with this litte guy . Why? I was expecting this figure to be a bit bigger. Is not easy to get there. Many people around her. Many stores with souvenir and chocolats stores.

Manneken Pis is one of the most famous attractions in Brussels, so in my imagination it would be a huge monument in a big square. Nevertheless, to my great surprise, it was a tiny monument in the corner of a street. I could understand that that was the Monument because it had a ,lot of tourists with selfies sticks and... More

It's just a guy peeing really. I can visit a unisex public restroom for the same experience. Except I doubt I'd be elbowed by Canon DSLR yielding manics in the latter.

Located in the beautiful city center of Brussels, a must place to visit while in this country. The sculpture is quite small but a must.
