The Saint-Géry Walk – The Urge to Pee

Brussels seems to have a bit of an obsession with peeing. There is the famous Manneken Pis. And there is even a female version, called Jeanneke Pis. And that’s not all. Have a look in the Rue des Chartreux.

At the corner of the street, you will find the Zinneke: a small statue of a mongrel, lifting his leg! The word Zinneke refers to the Zenne, the river flowing through Brussels. It is also a nickname for the people of Brussels.

Anyway, we started the Saint-Géry Walk with peeing and we end it with … peeing. Lars and I hope you enjoyed our walk and we hope that you discovered some interesting places! Starting tomorrow, we will blog about our trip to Berlin!

    I saw a topiary dog in that position a while ago! (Not in Brussels though.)

        I couldn’t remember the name of the place when I wrote that so just looked it up! Tetbury in England, it was outside either a restaurant or an antique shop in the high street.

    Love these! The peeing boy did not inspire me when I saw it. But I missed these. How long ahve they been there?

      Jeanneke Pis since 1987 and Zinneke the dog since 1998.

        Trying to think when I was there, maybe 98, but I think 99. I must have missed the dog, but I told a friend about it who is there now.

    I must truly be past middle age if the mere description of all this makes me ponder whether it’s not time for me to take a trip down the hall, too. 😉
