Manneken-Pis was at first a fountain that played an essential role in the former distribution of drinking water since the 15th century. The system was well-known in all of Europe. Towards the end of the 17th century, the statue became more and more important in the city life. It was also a survivor of the bombardment of Brussels in 1695. Manneken-Pis became a precious good and enjoys a ceaselessly growing glory. During big events, we adorn him with luxurious clothes. We know that in the 18th century, Manneken-Pis was dressed at least 4 times a year.
Manneken-Pis is very often dressed in different costumes. At the moment he has a wardrobe of more than 600 costumes, which are all preserved in the King’s House, or City Museum at the Grand-Place, the central market square of the city. 2002, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017.

The famous Manneken Pis is a statue of a small boy urinating into a fountain’s basin. Discover why it has become the most renowned landmark of Brussels and its legend. The Manneken Pis was designed in 1388 and is one of the most representative and loved symbols of Brussels, originally serving as the means by which many Bruxellois received water. It is a small bronze statue that measures 50 cm and represents a small naked boy urinating into a fountain’s basin. It is located in the old part of town, between rue de L'Étuve and rue Chene, next to the Grand Place. Given the importance of the statue, many armed forces have tried to steal it throughout the years, until an ex-convict was finally able to do so in 1817
Manneken Pis has been a public fountain, a mascot and the hero of many incredible tales. He has received gifts from lords and kings and has been abducted and saved several times. Since little is known about Manneken Pis, here’s a brief history of the little statue. It’s easy to overlook Brussels’ Manneken Pis between the tourist shops and waffle stands. Located at the corner of Rue de l’Étuve and Rue du Chêne, there is no clear explanation as to why the statue stands there.
