Jean Jansen went on tour with exotic animals, including an elephant, through Europe around 1695.

Der belgische Elefantenführer Jean Jansen trieb den dressierten Koloss, der wohl aus holländischen Kolonien stammte, von Würzburg aus in Richtung Bamberg und Nürnberg, um endlich die Kaiserstadt Wien zu erreichen.

House no. 7 in the present Elefantengasse (elephant street, named after the occasion), where an elephant depiction from the same period was installed up to 1945, is reminiscent of his stay in Würzburg. a stone elephant can be seen on the outside wall. Further news about elephants at fairs and fairs in Munich and Frankfurt come from 1695.
