Welcome boys and girls, ladies and gentlemen! It is time for the 49th International Christmas Winter Circus. The Hertog Jan Zaal will be transformed once again into a real circus arena.

From jugglers to trapeze artists, and from clowns to balancing experts – every year we bring the most incredible acts from all over the world right here to Eindhoven. This year again, ringmaster Arjan Smit will welcome you and a live orchestra will accompany the artists. Enjoy an unforgettable afternoon or evening with the entire family in the Parktheater!

Outside the circus arena

There is also plenty to do outside of the arena. Show off your own skills at the circus playground. Or enjoy a High Tea or our special Christmas Winter Circus Menu (incl. a children’s menu) in our restaurant Smaaktheater Dertien!

  • Choose from: seats in the auditorium, grandstand or ringside seats (ringside seats € 5 surcharge).
  • Try-out on Sat 21, Premiere on Sun 22 at 12:00 pm
  • ‘Child price’ circus applies to children 0-12 years old

"Amazingly beautiful and professional circus!" 

"Both the children and ourselves have greatly enjoyed the beautiful, professional show."
