Manneken Pis

The genius will explore what you can pay for!

The most famous Brusselian is undoubtedly Manneken Pis (le Petit Julien). The peeing little man is great in terms of fame but small in stature: he is only 58 cm tall. The original statue was made in 1619, commissioned by the Brussels city council. It was stolen a few times and destroyed in 1817. Based on the remaining fragments they made a mould, so that the current figurine is a cast of the original. It is a Brussels tradition to dress up Manneken Pis. In the Museum of the City of Brussels you will find more than 700 of his costumes.

Address: Manneken Pis is on the corner of the Eikstraat and the Stoofstraat.
