CIRCUS KRONE WINTER QUARTERS, MUNICH GERMANY
I get a lot of questions about the Krone Winter Quarters so we're going to do a tour of the facility, which by the way is in the middle of the city just a few blocks from downtown Munich. Starting with an aerial view of the whole compound, #1 is the Circus Building, a side note, this building was completely desroyed by Allied Bombers in December, 1944. The animals had been evacuated to the Krone Farm outside of Munich, oddly there was no damage to the surrounding Krone Buildings. #2 is the entrance to the Circus Bldg.; #3 The Krone Home & Offices; #4 Personel apartments; the small bldg between 2 & 4 is the Heating Plant for the entire facility; #5 has a small riding arena on the ground floor which is also the stging area for performances, this bldg. also house dressing rooms, a ballet hall & wardobe Depts.; #6 indoor practice ring; #7 Feed Barn; #8 Horse & Pony barn; #9 Exotic Animals; #10 Elephants; #11 Wild Animal Barn. Directly across the street are the Workshops, Trailer Parking, & parking lot.
