Today the Circus Building is the oldest of its kind in Europe. It was inaugurated with an enormous public celebration in Copenhagen on 8 May 1886. Since then, the building has played host to a wide variety of Danish and international circus troupes. From 2003 Wallmans Dinnershow has been the Circus Building’s resident entertainment.In 1884, Fritz Petersen, a master carpenter, purchased the site on Jernbanegade, next to Axeltorv, for DKK 954,000. The Circus Building was then built. It was designed by the architect H. V. Brinkopff, while the beautiful horse-racing frieze, which encircles the outside of the building, was created by the sculptor, Frederik Hammeleff.

After the renovation, the City of Copenhagen outsourced the management of the building, first to Tivoli (1984-1996) and then to Parken (1997-2002). In 2003 the Swedish entrepreneur Hasse Wallman (born 1936) took over the running of the Circus Building. In 2009 Wallmans became part of the entertainment company 2Egroup, who two years later, in 2011, purchased the Circus Building from the City of Copenhagen.

 

So, since 2003 Wallmans have occupied this Copenhagen cultural icon. Today this well-known, popular dinner show, during which guests see a spectacular show, while simultaneously enjoying a delicious 4-course meal, is the Circus Building’s main activity.
