About Manneken Pis, Brussels

There is probably no more ubiquitous symbol of Brussels than the cheeky 17th century bronze statue of a naked little boy urinating into a pool of water. According to folklore, in the 14th century, when the city was under siege, a little boy named Julianske saw the attackers were trying to bring down the city walls with explosives and peed on the fuse, thus saving Brussels. This is just one of the many legends behind the statue. The original statue at this location was first installed in the 15th century, made of stone. That was later replaced by a bronze one. Subject to multiple thefts, the original statue has been moved to Maison du Roi; the one here is a 1965 replica. Many times a week, for various reasons, it’s a common tradition to dress up the statue in different sorts of costumes. The full wardrobe of hundreds of costumes can be seen at the City Museum. Sometimes the statue will be hooked up to a keg of beer and is poured for people passing by the statue. The statue also has a female counterpart called Jeanneke Pis on the eastern side of the city.

Manneken Pis, Brussels Reviews

  • Very interesting place to visit.Interesting history. When I visited there were lot of tourists from all over the world. The nearby street offers plenty of chocolates n other interesting eatables. Must visit n must photo opportunity. Don't miss!

  • This place is everything that Brussels stands for. Cosy streets, bars, chocolate shops and old statues. The statue is actually quite small, but it is all about reputation. A lot of people come here to have a look. So take your picture and enjoy.

  • This is a symbol of the city of Brussels. All my respect for an historical place that must be visited. However, if I have to compare to a Colosseum or another breathtaking important historical place, I can't give more than 3 stars, not 2 due to his cultural importance. The first time I've seen it, I was expecting a bigger shape, but I can understand the excitement of dressing him in different ways based on the celebrated events. It's not far from the Grand Place, hence you may want to show him to your guests passing from the crowded Grand Place first as round cultural trip. Lot of art nouveau place nearby.

  • This place is of historical importance for the people of Brussels. The original statue has been kept in meusuem for quiet some time in order to avoid further attempts to theft and destroy. The current statue has been seen with many beautiful dresses from time to time and also from one occasion to the other giving a live feel to the surroundings and also to the people of Brussels.

  • If you know that he's a little fellow, then you won't be disappointed about all the fuss that seems to be made about him. He gets dressed daily in different outfits to celebrate events (World Customs Day, when I went). He is no Trevi fountain but he is a landmark of Brussels, despite his size.
