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.

Its something to see, as its so famous in Brussels, but its always full of people trying to take pictures with it. If its on your way, take a quick look!

We eventually found this but I must admit that it was smaller than I anticipated. I am pleased that I saw it but could not see what all the fuss was about.

Lucky for us that the tour guide already told us not to imagine a big Manneken Pis, because it's only the story that big but not the statue. But, as this is one of Brussels history then it will be wise if you come by. Try the Belgian waffle around this statue. It's nice.

I thought the most interesting thing was a candy store with the same name right next door. Not sure I'd buy candy there lol.....

Staying in Grand Place for a business trip and stumbled upon this attraction while walking through the cobblestone streets. I nearly missed this sight because I was enthralled by the amazing architecture of the surrounding streets, however, noticed a small crowd on the street corner taking photographs. As you explore the area around Grand Place, take 5 minutes to stop... More

This cute little peeing cherub statue was first erected in the Middle Ages and important to the development of the city water supply up until mid 19th century but the informational sign doesn't tell you why?? The original stone statute now displayed in the Grand Palace museum was replaced by a commissioned bronze in the 17th century. Maybe there's a... More

If it weren't for the people taking photos of this little statue, I would have walked past it. I get that it is the city's mascot, but I was not really impressed. It is a good place to grab some waffles, though. The shops with the lowest prices usually have the best waffles - they have to sell a lot... More

It's a good place to go and visit but I wouldn't just go on a holiday to go and visit the Pis. It's quite a funny statue.

This is a tiny statue of a cherubic boy peeing. That is all. In terms of comparing it to other must see statues around the world it doesn't measure up (literally). But when we were there there was some form of celebration with an omm pah band and they had dressed the statue up. Its very close to Grand Place... More

After walking in the heat looking for this attraction, we were disappointed to find that this national treasure is not much more to see than the replicas that are in most of the Brussels souvenir shops. 5 minute attraction. Not really worth the time
