*Circus Busch was founded by Paul Busch in Denmark in 1884. In 1895 the circus created a world-renowned home-base in Berlin, in a beautiful permanent circular building which could seat almost 4500 people. Even Houdini would perform there on multiple occasions. After Paul Busch's death, his daughter Paula took over the business in 1927. The circus still exists today, under the name Busch-Roland.
