The Elephant is a restaurant, probably a very traditional one. I cannto tell about interior and food, I am mentioning it here because of its sign, which is a small but pretty detail in the view along Hussenstraße towards the Münster steeple. The sign is hanging from elaborate forged ironwork. It shows a gilded elephant with an elegant caparison.

Look closely: There is a second elephant at the corner of the house on the first floor.

The apricot-coloured "Elephant" house looks almost like a tower. It has indeed medieval origins. However, the top with the merlons is a recent addition.

Directions: Hussenstraße, corner Salmansweilergasse
