This particular elephant blossoms right next to St. Paul’s Basilica downtown Trier.

For those who have noticed, our region has been invaded by…elephants. About 95 unique elephant statues of varying colors and designs by local and regional artists are presently scattered throughout the pedestrian areas in Trier and Luxembourg.  Elephant Parade, the largest outdoor art exhibition of its kind, raises charity to save Asian elephants from extinction.

For regular Trier visitors, see if you can track all 40 of the colorful animals to pose in front of them for a photo.  What an excellent way to see the city!
