Nestled in the centre of Brussels, the Grand Place is considered one of the most beautiful squares in the world. You will find the Maison du Roy (now the Musée de la Ville) as well as the even older Hôtel de Ville, but also the Maison des Brasseurs and other architectural jewels. Every 2 years, in mid-August, the “Flower Carpet” is displayed on the Grand Place.
This little man with a strange posture is one of the most famous symbols of the Brussels people, tall by his fame, he measures only 55.5 cm! His real name is Menneke pis, which means a little boy in Brussels. The legend of Manneken-Pis remains a real enigma…. it would have extinguished the beginning of a fire on Brussels….
Tradition has it that the city’s guests offer him a suit. Most of his outfits are visible at the Manneken-Piss Museum, adjacent to the small statue.
