Cirkus – Linköping

In the early 1900s, a circus building was built in Linköping. Here, traveling circus companies could rent the building and give their performances. The building is still standing but nowadays offices and a café are housed in the building. At Platensgatan 29 in Linköping, the red machine-made brick circus building is located. It was ready in the summer of 1912 and was opened the same autumn. The men behind the building were E.G. Allardsson, Carl Andersson and A.E. Torell. The architect was Nils Meijer.

The idea was that the building would be rented to various circus companies that were touring, but also as a multi-functional hall. Circus Orlando had the honour of appearing on the opening night of September 27, 1912. Audiences could see, among other things, five lions and a tiger. Östgöta News Correspondent was in place and wrote in the newspaper that there was a patch on the gap. In parallel with the circus business, a cafe also opened in the premises.

Nowadays the Cirkus Cafeet (Circus Café still exists) the circus building that had been used for several years as a indoor car park has been converted into office spaces by the company Folksam.
