Cirque au Sommet in Crans-Montana

A festival of contemporary circus

In August, discover the magical world of circus right in the heart of the Swiss Alps.

Every year since 2018, Crans-Montana has been hosting the crème de la crème of international circus, briefly becoming the capital of contemporary circus in Switzerland.

A unique experience in the form of different shows:

  • An original performance under the big top featuring internationally renowned artists
  • A stage with open-air seating at the heart of Crans, an outdoor stage
  • The high-altitude stage with a stunning view across the Alps

The academy allows young circus performers to master their trade or to learn this performing art with guest artists and qualified trainers. 

A series of talks called “Nature at the summit” rounds off this event.
