Current production


The Kölner Weihnachtscircus is undisputedly one of the very best in Europe. Not only because of its own unique style, but also because of the wonderful amalgamation of many aspects of culture. In Cologne – the famous city on the Rhine River – theatre, live opera and circus will meet each other in a beautiful way. This is the place where ballet, live opera, amazing stunts and the best comedy are brought together with the help of stylish choreography. This all to give visitors something unique during the most wonderful time of the year.
More than 40 international, award-winning artists will take you to a two and a half hour journey. This year the show will be accompanied by two Monte Carlo Festival award-winning clowns. Clown Fumagalli with his brother Daris (Golden Clown) from Italy and Trio EquiVokee (Bronze Clown) from Ukraine will provide great laughter and amazement. We invite you to "laugh, stand & enjoy" with us during the cold days in the city of Cologne, in Germany.

7 years of top quality

Of course, the show will be the centre of attention of the experience, but the dutch producers Ilja and Katja Smitt will focus as many as possible on service and hospitality for their valued visitors. The couple have been organising events since the early nineties and have a lot experience. They only make shows that they would like to visit by themselves. This philosophy built the fundament for the annual tradition in the city of Cologne.

The Kölner Weihnachtscircus will open its tents for the 7th edition from 2 December 2022 to 1 January 2023 in Cologne-Deutz by the Zoobrücke (Messe P 21).
