Zinneke Pis - Review
Continuing the theme of urinating sculptures is this bronze statue of a dog taking a wee with its hind leg jauntily stuck in the air. Het Zinneke is the correct name of the statue, but who cares? It’s not just there to complete the set of the boy and girl and dog thought. The word ‘zinneke’ actual means a person of mixed origin, symbolised here by a mongrel. This in turn is supposed to represent Brussels’ mixture of peoples. Take an amusing photo.

Zinneke Pis, Brussels Reviews
This is one of the beautiful attractions of Brussels that you must see especially if you like dogs, being a statue in natural size. This attraction is very close to Grand Platz so you don't have to walk to much to see it.
Honestly I know it is one of the things you have to see in Brussels, but I don’t get the fuss. It is fairly small (life size) and set about 12 feet up on a wall behind a fence. You can’t get close enough to see any detail in the artistry. Everything in the immediate vicinity is a tourist trap. The first morning we were there, a local souvenir shop had dressed it, so it was not visible at all. It is also endlessly fascinating to drunken reveled after dark. If you have plenty of time, you might as well wander by, if you don’t-there is more interesting sculpture in Brussels.
Beautiful bronze statue! A must visit to complete the 3 famous statue in Brussels.
Personally enjoyed this particular statue over the "Manneken Pis" as you could walk right next to the dog and if desired, you could touch it as well. As an additional bonus, it was far less crowded, giving you the opportunity to really enjoy the art and take some personal photos with the object. Definitely a fun art piece within the city and if your time permits, it is definitely worth the visit!
If you liked manneken piss and Jeanelle, you should not miss this peeing dog statue. Also, located in an interesting area that you would miss otherwise
