75th Anniversary of the Re-Opening of Circus Krone (December 23, 1945)

In 1945 the renowned Circus Krone re-opens its doors to the public, just in time for the first Christmas after World War II. One year earlier the Circus Krone building—a wooden structure originally built in 1919—was destroyed in an air raid on Munich. The crew and animals had already evacuated to the family compound in Wessling, outside of Munich. After several months of construction a new, temporary home is inaugurated on the Marsfeld (Field of Mars). It would take another 17 years for a modern structure—still in use today—to replace this „temporary“ structure.

The circus traditionally uses the building on the Marsfeld as its home base in the winter.

The family business was originally founded in 1905 and became famous thanks to its unusual mix of human performers and performing animals, it also didn’t hurt to have international stars like the clown Oleg Popov under contract. 

In the summer the circus is on the road all over Europe with its tent. The Krone building in Munich is rented out as an event space during these months. Everyone from the Rolling Stones to Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and the Clash performs at this unique space. In 1966 the Beatles play two rather short concerts at the Circus Krone building, causing mayhem in the city. Muhammad Ali uses the arena as a training space in 1976, to get ready for his fight in the Olympic Hall. He even makes the training public, so his fans can watch.

Until it was discontinued in 2008 the yearly television benefit „Stars in der Manege“ was filmed at the Circus Krone. Today the stage of the Krone building mostly hosts stand up comedians. This year the circus’ annual winter premiere is cancelled due to the pandemic.
