I had seen it on the tv and it seemed to be bigger, but it is very beautiful and it is always decorated due to different events or reasons. Moreover, it is located very close of the Grand Place and you can admire it eating the traditional Belgian things, such as the fries, waffles or chocolate, because there are many... More

It funny, interesting but very small. I was not particularly impressed but still worth having a quick look at.

A very small statue on one of the narrow streets going out from the grand place. You don't have to spend more than 2 minutes there so don't considered as a main attraction in your plan.

Well, I guess this is one of those must see little oddities in Brussels, not that it will take all that much time because it is basically a statue of a boy urinating into a small pool, though the thing is that every so often you will come here and discover that somebody has decided to put some clothes on...

I am not sure how this has become such an icon for Brussels. The statue itself is not really special and it is in a plain place with nothing special around. Not really worth seeking out.

Worth a trip for a selfie and get a delicious waffle and home and homemade chocolate in the stores. Central location. Use google maps - load the location before leaving the hotel and easily walk here.

The manneken pis statue is quiet interesting with an interesting history. Quiet central in the town centre, one can easily walk to other tourists sites afterwards.

Positioned in a small corner, it is difficult getting a good look. And, if it's a day the are changing his "clothes", it's a mob scene. See it once, and call it a day.
