Manneken Pis  

Manneken Pis, Brussels

Are you planning to visit Manneken Pis? See our information below!


It looks a bit strange, but Manneken Pis (peeing boy) is one of the most popular sights in Brussels among locals and foreign tourists alike. The statue itself, may be a bit disappointing, but the stories surrounding Manneken Pis are fun. Manneken Pis is about 55.5 cm tall and has been through a lot.

The statue was originally created in 1619. Unfortunately, Manneken Pis was regularly kidnapped and damaged over the years. That is why the current version of the statue is safely behind bars and dates back to 1965. As a result, several copies were made and the original Manneken Pis now ‘lives’ in the Bread House on the Grote Markt.

Manneken Pis has an official employee. This is Manneken Pis’ dresser, the one who picks and puts on his costumes. And it has to, because the little guy has more than 1,200 costumes in his closet. And some 20-30 new costumes are added every year.
