Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

KRONE HOUSE& OFFICES


Finishing back at the front of the complex is the building that cotains the Circus Krone offices, and family living space. The side door leads to the offices that occupy the front of the first floor, there is a swimming pool in the basement, and much of top floor is a party room with dance floor, bar, & kitchen. Just over the SUV you can see a statue of Clown Charlie Rivel, this was donated to the city of Munich, & not knowing where to display it they asked permission to place it here by the entrance of Circus Krone.

Isn't it amazing that all of this still remains in the middle of a metropolis!!

Sure was great for shopping, and just one block from the trailer was a theater that showed movies in English, and another block to a subway stop, and restaurants everywhere.

Bill,
Thanks for this GREAT tour of something (someplace I'll probably never get! When I win the lottery I'm going to build a complex similar to this, and get to enjoy the circus forever. Of course there will be an extra added security fence around the place to keep back the eco-terrorist, but this will be a wonderful place to remember the "good ole days", as it were.
Pete the Baraboobian!

One of the amazing things about this, is every weekend the animal barns are open to the public,(for a price of course), now Munich has a wonderful zoo, but you wouldn't believe how many people come to the Krone, "zoo".
