    Manneken Pis

    The famous statue of a little boy urinating. It's actually quite small, much smaller than we expected, but is always surrounded by tourists!

    Manneken Pis is a small bronze statue of a boy urinating (water). And that is pretty much it. But it is entertaining to see. They dress the statue up in customes at various times of the year.

    (Don't try to mimic in public!)

    Visiting the Mannekin Pis is a must, it's more important than having a beer in Belgium... well maybe I am exaggarating here but you cannot leave Brussels without visiting this little boy.

    This little guy is everywhere. But the real one is a fountain with a wardrobe for every occasion. He even has an Elvis costume.

    Story has it that when a man found his missing son, the lad was relieving himself. So in his honor, the man built this fountain. Proof of the Belgian sense of humor. Not the original statue.

    Other than the Grand Place, the main attraction is the famous Manneken Pis statue. This appears to be Brussels equivalent to Copenhagens Little Mermaid.

    Ok, its a bit gimmicky, this rather tiny statue...but it's a kind of symbol of Brussells and its fun to see. At certain times of the year they dress him in clothes.

    Yes, it is silly but you have to go see it. It's a statue of a little boy doing his thing. Enough said.

    A very strange statue that isn't really anything special. Yet many tourists seem to gather around waiting for there chance of a clear photo.

    Fountain dress-up

    by annarborsef Updated Oct 9, 2003

    If you get ther during daylight, the statue is dressed in one of a handful of outfits (the other outfits are on display). And, you can stop in at one of the local pubs for a beverage.

    Curious little fountain of a small chap pissing. Was surrounded with Japanese tourists when I was there but I managed to get a decent snap.
