Located within the grand place is this statue dedicated to Lord Kruikenburg a citizen of the city, who is said to have driven the flemings from the city. During a visit be sure to touch the laying figure as it brings luck.

This monument is just as you leave the Grand Place and walk towards Manequin Piss. It is believed to bring good luck, if you touch it. Usually, crowded, as too many tourists around

The sculpture is a monument to a local hero, who is unlikely to be known to anyone outside of Brussels. In that context, it's a worthy monument. It supposedly brings luck and grants the wishes of all who touch it. Many tourists like to rub...More

It was pretty, it had been restored since my last visit. You are supposed to make a wish as you run your hand head to foot.

Monument, dedicated to Everard T Serclaes. He was liberator of Brussels. Sculpture is work of Julien Dillens. A good art work, is partly a tourist trap. Allegedly it brings luck to visitors of the place if they touch it. You can believe if you want.

This sculpture is on a wall of the Grand Place as you head towards Mannekin Pis. The sculpture is said to bring good luck to those who strike the bronze arm.

This is a classical example of "touch to get good luck" sculpture as the one in Prague, Verona, etc. It is situated next to the city hall which is a must see, so a picture doesn't take much time out of the budget

It's part of Brussels history which supposedly grants one wish to those who stroke it. I wished for something good in Brussels which didn't come true. It's a nice small depiction of a corpse. Five doors down on your right if you face it there...More
