We were advised where to visit in Brussels by our hotel and as we were at Grand Place when went to visit Manneken Pis. You walk down a little busy street filled with €1 waffle shops and suddenly the statue is there on the corner. There are lots of people taking pics and it's very small. I was surprised to... More

Another must see when in Brussels . A short walk from the grand town hall. Almost missable if not for the throngs of tourists snapping photos. Occasionally dressed in various seasonal clothing, and enshrined in chocolate by the surrounding chocolatiers.

Interesting area, plays heavily on the statue of the boy urinating. Some good murals on the buildings and average shopping facilities

I always just thought of it as 'just a statue' but seeing as I was in Brussels for a few hours I thought I may as well go for a walk to see it. Well - couldn't see it because it was covered head to toe in some Xmas getup. Pointless effort I had made. Disappointed.

The story behind the manneken is funny. I'm happy that this is outside and you can take pictures from different angles.

The famous small, bronze sculpture landmark Manneken Pis ("Little Man Pee") in Brussels. Depicting a two and a half feet tall boy peeing into a fountain's basin made in 1619. It's the national rebellious symbol of Belgium. The area is always packed with locals and tourists, and many belgian waffle shops and chocolate shops nearby which definitely must be tried.

It's a statue of a little boy peeing into a fountain. It's apparently a big deal, so we stopped by to check it out. There were a few other tourists there, and the statue was dressed as an Albanian. You can find lots of keychains and such of this little guy in the souvenir shops around town...if that's your thing.... More

Really not much to see. Actually passed it before we understood what it was. Small, and in a corner covered with wire mesh to protect it.

Very strange that people come from far and wide to see this. Much smaller in real life. Glad I have seen it, but only as I was passing. Very strange.
