- This beautiful building was commissioned in 1885 and designed by H.W. Brinkogff. Situated just by Rådhuspladsen, the Cirkus building burnt down to the ground in 1914 and was reconstructed in 1915. From that time on, several circuses have used the building as their performance place during the winter season, especially the Benneweis and Schumann families. Today the building is also used for concerts, theatre performances and sports events (such as badminton or boxing). The building was totally restored in 1982-84, and presents itself today in its original form, with ornaments by sculptor Frederik Hammeleff. An example is the Alexander frieze that represents classical horseracing.
