The Berlin Circus Festival is the festival for contemporary circus on Tempelhof field in Berlin. From mid-December over the holidays and into the New Year, we present a selection of the best pieces that circus has to offer.
Finally, it's time again for circus, performing arts, wild experiences and new perspectives. If there’s one thing circus can do, it is to portray risk and articulate danger, masterfully mixed with humor, sincerety, surprise and a splash of madness.
You can expect a breathtaking mix of artistry, dance and performance! The 7. Berlin Circus Festival will not be a festival like before, but a winter edition: While being warm and cosy, you can watch great shows with a longer programme over three weeks. In addition, you can reserve a table in our restaurant tent before and after each show and order your favourite dish in advance. With live music, a freshly tapped beer, mulled wine or a refreshing soda, you will forget the time in the lounge tent.
Since its foundation, the Berlin Circus Festival has developed into the largest and most innovative festival for contemporary circus in Germany. We show you renowned productions, spectacular shows, great young talents and much more.
Age restrictions and possible language barriers are noted in the programme.
