    Though it's a must see in Brussels, don't be fooled to buy all the merchandise they try to sell:
    'Manneken Pis'.
    It's a cute statue to see, but do you really want to pay a lot of money to have a copy in your home of this little boy peeing?

    The MANNEKEN PIS is certainly a little thing - and quite a disappointment. There is so much more to Belgium's capital than this! Try to see this statue on a special day when he's dressed up and sprinkling beer instead of water!

    Location: On the corner of Stoofstraat/Rue de L'Etuve and the Eikstraat/Rue du Chêne (At the Grand-Place follow the street on the left side of the town hall)

    by MichaelBeech Written Aug 24, 2002

    In Brussels the biggest traps - but fun to visit are 'Mascon ***' (?) a stature in central Brussels of a boy child pissing (complete with running water). The local shop owner dresses the statue in a different outfit daily and then sells hundreds of the outfits to tourists. Makes you wonder how many people in the world have statues of pissing boys in their yard! The second trap is 'The Atom' where you can walk inside a several stories tall atom - Why not?

    This statue is so popular and small too!

    Everywhere you go in Brussels you will see this little boy´s figure. It is so small when you actually get to see the statue but I guess is something you have to see when you go to Brussels.

    OK, so its small and twee, but its free and you don't have to hang around too long.

    Unique Suggestions: Go early to avoid the crowds.

    Maybe it is a must see, but the little Manneken-Pis is quite stupid. The only cool thing is that he gets dressed up in different outfits every so often.

    Maneken Pis:
    Well he's cute, but Brussels is filled with people wandering around looking for him. He isn't worth the quest!
