Of course you can also not visit Bogense without greeting little Mannekin Pis. But wait, do you think it is not in Brussels? Yes, yes, but in Adelgade you will find a copy of the little peeing boy. And at Christmas time he is dressed in fine Santa clothes. From Adelgade you can also follow in the footsteps of the guards on The Watchman’s Path along the town stream. You can also stroll to Adelgade 58 and see the world's (perhaps) oldest holly. The large beautiful holly with thousands of red berries gives a good shot Christmas mood.
