“Underwhelming statue, but visit the museum.”

“Hard to avoid but hardly worth the trouble”
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.

He went around 11am and there was some celebration outside. We sat across the street outside at a bar and it was fun to watch the commotion at the statue. For some reason people were handing out free beer at the statue - not sure...More

I recently saw this statue on a list of most overrated tourist attractions anywhere, so it wasn't even on my list of things to do, but I saw signs directing us to the statue when we were out looking at all the little shops near...More

This little boy has put Brussels on the tourist map; people travel to this city from all over the world just to catch a glimpse of him urinating. Love him or hate him, there is always a reason to return to the Manneken Pis

Such a a small statue. Did get so disappointed. And what’s with the peeing statues everywhere? Anyways since it’s a thing for Brussels you “have to” see it. And there’s good food near by so don’t just focus on the statue. Pretty crowded so you...More

The statue itself is massively underwhelming (and not actually the real one - it’s a replica!). The original one is in the museum (Kings House) on Grand Place. Worth a visit as it explains some of the history behind it.

Funny little statue. If you do the comic strip walk you can see this on route. They say it sometimes is dressed in an outfit depending on the time of year.

A statue that apparently matches the Belgian psyche. Mmmm. There is a very good bar opposite. Aside from that lots of people taking selfies of them eating the most sickly waffle they can find in any number of crappy waffle shops nearby. The Manneken Pis...More

Going out of your way to see this tiny statue is like making an effort to see Plymouth Rock. It looks EXACTLY as is does in the travelogues, postcards and books of Belgium.

On many 'Things to do in Brussels' lists on the internet. Ok done it, now what? Just a statue on a corner, can say I've been there but thats about it. The chocolate shops with chocolate manneken pis boys are better to look at

Finally one wonders what is so significant about a small bronze statue of a boy pissing.......well each city or country attaches some importance to their culture or tradition and it has to be respected. Legend says that the young boy pissed on a live bomb...More
