Zürich Off The Beaten Path: 127 reviews and 291 photos
The Elefantenbach is a small river going down from Zurich-Witikon to Burgwies in a ravine. The highlight is the concrete elefant standing in the middle of the ravine.
The area is excellent for families as children can play and are out in the nature. You can also picnic by the elefant.
How to get there:
Tram to Klusplatz, then trolleybus no. 34 to Loorenstrasse, cross the road and follow the yellow sign.
From Witikon along the Elefantenbach to Burgwies (Tram no. 11) it takes about 50 minutes. If you want to hike further, you just continue along the ravine through the pedestrian tunnel at Burgwies and soon you will be near the botanical gardens. Walk through the gardens and out on the other side and continue down all the way to the lake and along the lake further to Bellevue.
