Cirkus on Djurgarden was inaugurated May 25 1892 to house many of the great circus parties. Over the years Cirkus has become a community center with events such as concerts, conferences, TV recordings but especially theater, musicals and shows. In October 2015 Cirkus increased with a further stage, the smaller Skandiascenen. Today Cirkus and Skandiascenen is a complete facility. We have everything from Cirkus big stage in a historical environment, with capacity for 1644 seated guests, to the ultramodern new Skandiascenen that takes up to 800 people theater style. Cirkus Arena & Restaurant has mingling areas for several hundred guests and space for exhibitors.

Being from Chicago, I had never seen Riverdance live – definitely saw snippets of it here and there on tape but that it was nothing like being able to see the company perform at circus in Stockholm Sweden the night before I returned home. Marvelous.

Went for The Phantom of The Opera at Cirkus Stockholm. Great show, okay services like The restaurant, cloak room and toilets that all fill up and are somewhat crowded during recess and after the show. Liked The arena, good chairs and so.

Really beautifully done opera in Swedish, lots of decorations and scene changes! The tickets were quite expensive but regardless of where you sit, everybody sees and hears what is going on of the stage.

The entry and ticket handling was very efficient, and we were very quickly into the auditorium, which is very impressive. Despite being a regular 'hard' building, it really felt like a circuses big-top. The seats had slightly more legroom than at some similar venues in...More

I really like going to live performances here. The sound is allright but the interior is really old and nice. It's a cozy arena.

Not a bad seat in the house and even on the warm day that we had, was still cool inside. Bar prices are a bit steep but then this is Stockholm

Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn
The island of Djurgården and its northern mainland
extension, Djurgårdsbrunn, impress with a mix of
nature and an abundance of museums, while being
located in walking distance to Stockholm’s city
center. Djurgården not only invites visitors to take
endless walks through a beautiful park landscape
without having to leave the city, but also offers an
incredible range of entertainment facilities, such as
