No, not exciting but still worthwhile Oct 24, 2012
I recommend a quick trip to see Mannekin-Pis not because it's culturally fascinating or artistically beautifully (because it isn't) but for three real reasons: 1) it's free and just two minutes walk from Grand Place, on a street you'll likely wander down anyway, 2) while it takes about 30 seconds to see the little guy, figure out his costume, and move on, you can enjoy a different perspective by spending a few extra minutes watching the crowd of tourists, and 3) Many locals love him, and it's simply part of seeing Brussels.

It was the 4th of July (American Independence Day) when I last visited, so he was decked out like Uncle Sam with an Obama slogan on his hat.

Nothing special. Jul 06, 2010
It is just a little boy pissing, but it's the symbol of Brussels. Totally overestimated. The only interesting thing is that the statue dresses hundreds of different costumes...

You shouldn't expect much from something like this. When you don't, it actually provides a pleasant distraction, something to tick off of the list of things-to-do-and-see. But that is all it is. Thankfully all the hype created by the image being shown on every television feature on Brussels did not get me too built up with anticipation for getting to see this little boy's cast iron penis
