just a short 5 minute walk south from the Grand Place along Rue Charles Buls and then to Rue de l’Etuve will take you to the most famous statue in Brussels which is the cheeky Mannekin Pis. This small 61 centimeter bronze statue, made by local artist Jerome Duquesnoy in 1619 is a regular small boy which is taking a pee to the fountain basin below of which the statue is now a replica as the original is now housed in in the King Place (the Breadhouse just across the Town Hall in Grand Place where the more than 700 different clothes that the mannekin pis statue is dressed differently everyday is also housed).
