The peeing girl of Brussels


Jeanneke Pis is a statue in the center of Brussels of a girl who is peeing. The statue was placed in 1987 on the initiative of the local traders with the intention of attracting more visitors to their street and, in particular, their restaurants.

The inspiration comes from the world famous Manneken Pis statute nearby. The work was realized under the impulse of Denis-Adrien Debouvrie, businessman and owner of several restaurants in the neighborhood. The statuette does not have any historical value.


You can find Jeanneke Pis at this address: Getrouwheidsgang 10 Brussels.
