Jeanneke Pis, Brussels

(900+ reviews on the web)
Monument Tourist Spot
A tougue-in-cheek counterpoint to the city's symbolic Manneken Pis statue, Jeanneke Pis depicts a young girl squatting and urinating. Erected in 1987 on a cul-de-sac down a narrow, less-travelled street, the statue is growing in popularity. If you've already snapped a few photos of the Manneken Pis (a centuries-old, centrally-located statue of a young boy urinating into a pool), consider snapping a photo, or two, of its female version to balance things out. You'll find the statue behind a cage near Rue des Bouchers in an alley. Use our Brussels family vacation planner to arrange your visit to Jeanneke Pis and other attractions in Brussels.

  • Only worth it if you visit the Delirium Village and feel the need to move away from the bar. It's just a very small statue of a girl peeing. Except the fountain wasn't on when we were there and it is ...  more »
  • Just to ensure sexual equality, in addition to the Manneken Pis, there is also the Jeanneke Pis in Brussels. You walk in almost the opposite direction from the Brussels Grand Place to that of her male...  more »
  • We came here because we went through some tiny street and saw this not very nice statue. It's just a female version of the famous one, quite distasteful to be honest, wouldn't bother.  more »

  • A lesser known leaking statue of Brussels. Hidden in a small alleyway behind an iron fence, unlike her brother who is doing it in a cross roads and laughing.
  • Mannekin's sister. Hidden away and only discovered it because of the crowd. Like Mannekin, not much to look at really.
  • Its in a corner so you need to search a little. I find it cuter than the male version plus its less crowded .
  • Having statues that pee as a city symbol is a bit weird... Anyway, still one star better than the Manneken Pis. The only one funny and worth it, is the peeing dog... because at least these actually pee on the streets...
  • The statue itself is found on a very „medieval” street in Bruxelles. Its not a piece of art as its motivation is not artistic but rather ideological (the author was upset that there ware only boy pissing statues and he decided to make one with a girl). It is very small (50 cm) and very hard to see as it closed behind some iron gates (apparently, people vandalized it often). Nearby is Delirium bar, where you can find cheap bear.
