WHILE YOU'RE THERE
Because Girls Also Have to Go

Everybody knows about Belgium’s Manneken Pis, the famous statue of a little naked boy who’s gloriously peeing on a pedestal for the world to see in the middle of Brussels. But, did you know there is also a little peeing girl around there somewhere? In an alley less than 10 minutes on foot south of the cloud of tourists that surrounds the urinator, you can quietly go take a picture of Jeanneke Pis, Manneken’s smiling female counterpart. Don’t let the boys hog all the attention.
If two leaky statues aren’t enough, you can then walk westwards for 10 minutes to see their pup: Zinneke Pis.
