No matter how you feel about circuses, the venerable Circus Krone is unlike any other. A Munich fixture for decades, its tent is vast and the shows are dazzling. After three months of performances, the circus goes on tour, leaving the city in a grand procession with elephants and camels driven along Arnulfstrasse towards the Hauptbahnhof.

The hall is left to host rock concerts and other events for the rest of the year.
