A Night at the Circus
It's the topsy-turvy world of Circus Krone, said to be the largest circus in Europe. Founded in 1905, and run by at least 3 generations of the Krone family, this is really a Munich establishment - located just west of the Central Train Station. The permanent arenea was destroyed in the allied bombing after WWII, but then rebuilt and now seats 3000 spectators. We went to the Winter circus, which was much more about acrobatics than animals. It was fun for the kids, but perhaps I miss the good old Tigers and Trapese.
