We visited Paris this January and decided to take our 5-year-old girl to the circus. The building is old, squeaky floors and chairs, smell of animals, not much room for legs, BUT when performance started we forgot about everything! Amazing performance! My daughter and I were so impressed!Highly recommended.

I recently spent a few days in Paris with my family (we have 2 kids aged 11 and 13) and having seen the Cirque D'Hiver very close to the place where we were staying we decided to try the experience. We simply purchased the tickets for the 5PM show on a Sunday, the day before at a Fnac store. The... More

It was simply spectacular: entertaining filled with beauty, all emotions (get ready to cry at the end), stunning stage, beautiful and skill acrobats, singing, music... An experience to share with everyone you love!

Booked this as an activity to do whilst travelling. Not the easiest place to locate, and there is often queueing outside because of security checks, but goes down quickly. I was on the back row (cheapest ticket) and booked online ahead which I would recommend. In terms of visibility, better than I was expecting from the back row, but please... More

We were easily the only tourists in an almost sold out show and had a very enjoyable evening. This a true circus: acrobats, clown, magicians, elephants, etc... in a beautiful building (is Paris after all). A little taste of what locals do on weekends and completely off the beaten path. Bought tickets through BilletReduct and got great seats.

We went to the Cirque D'Hiver in Paris on Saturday. It was a great show for all ages. Wonderful old fashioned circus setting, elephants and horses, gymnasts and trapeze artists, and lots of funny clown stuff. This is a very polished, entertaining show and well worth the time and money. A terrific family outing! My grandchildren loved it and declared... More
