The mannekin pis is one of the most popular sights in Brussels! and it pays to visit in the morning as he often is dressed in a national outfit, particularly if there is a national day going on somewhere in the world that day or anything to celebrate in Belgium.

When ive gone past again in the afternoon or evening of a day that ive seen him in an outfit in the morning hes clothesless again so hence why i recommend a morning visit.
The streets around where this water fountain is located are particularly scenic and also the puppet theatre is not far from here - a good place to quench your thirst with one of the vast selection of Belgian beers!
