Marienplatz Circus Stuttgart

Marienplatz Circus

The history of the square between Filderstrasse and Tübinger Strasse began romantically. A park was created there for the first time in 1876. Because the future King Wilhelm II had recently become engaged to Princess Marie von Waldeck-Pyrmont, the square was to bear her name – and from then on it was called Marienplatz.

A few years later it was crowned with a circus building, which Hofwerkmeister Albert Hangleiter had built there towards the end of the 19th century. It was heated and equipped with electric light – and was considered the most modern arena in the empire. Around 3500 people found space in it. All circus groups that had a reputation and reputation made guest appearances in Stuttgart at that time. Today nothing is left of the circus building because it had to be demolished in 1916. It no longer met the fire protection standards of the time.
