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 Dinnerparty has been the Circus Building’s resident entertainment.

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 Moment Group, who two years later, in 2011, purchased the Circus Building from the City of Copenhagen. On 1 May 2014, Balder bought the building and at the same time entered into a lease with Wallmans / Moment Group.

Since 2003, you have been able to experience Wallmans Dinnerparty (formerly Wallmans Dinnershow) in the Copenhagen cultural icon.

In addition to Wallmans Dinnerparty, today the Circus Building also plays a major role in Danish and international business communities. The Circus Building can accommodate professional and social events, with room for between 200 and 1,000 guests. This makes it an ideal venue for everything from corporate events, award shows and anniversaries to congresses, conferences and meetings.

Environmental efforts

The circus building, a listed building from 1886, is Green Key certified.

Green Key is tourism's most widespread environmental label, and with the certification they can now document that the historic building meets a number of strict environmental requirements in everything from energy, water and cleaning to organic raw materials.

Caring for people and the environment is an important part of Circus Building's DNA, and therefore they continuously work to strengthen the sustainable profile in all areas of their business.
