We bought our tickets in advance via a deal website and saved app. 10 euros for each. Also it is possible to buy tickets with reduced rates via their website but you can not save that much. The show was nice but not as scary as I expected. We had an English tour composed of 4 people in total which... More

Visted expecting at least some of the tour to be translated in english especially as the actors/guides were aware we were non german speakers. This would have been a great attraction had we been able to understand even a small part of the tour. This seems to be the norm with many german attractions. The only info board that had... More

For a one time visit , it is a good place to see . The performers are good and the whole act is not very scary. Book the tickets online to get a good discount

I didn't find the shows scary, but had a good time there nevertheless. The actors deliver a quite exciting performance in which they continuosly include the visitors. In my opinion, it's rather amusing than frightening. Language is German

We arrived early to take part in the English tour, and got our tickets the day before from the tourism office at a discounted price... The staff played their characters really well, it was fun watching the girls in our group scream, haha... They really get the group involved in the tour. I would recommend visiting this attraction if you... More

To get some thrill, I went there. And I got some thrill. Was enough for me (I´m easy to frighten), but it was worth it. To learn something about Hamburg, it´s better, to visit a serious museum, but for fun, it´s very nice.

I'm surprised to see this attraction so low in the TripAdvisor list. It is very interesting, the actors are really good and the place is very well constructed and decorated. I warn you, if you don't speak German, go to the English show (weekends), and go early because is a really popular place. Yes, is a bit more expensive than... More

They just take you through a bunch of rooms and say and do things that are not scary and not funny. There is a little bit of humor along the way, and the actors work hard, but it is not worth the money and not worth the time.

There are better shows or places to visit in Hamburg. The show we went to was in German and although we understood, perhaps we have a different sense of humour. There are two rides, one was good, albeit brief but the other was disappointing. The tour is mainly going through a sequence of rooms and being told a story by... More

We visited the Dungeon in Hamburg because we really appreciated the London Dungeon. Although it´s not at as high a level as the London version, it is still very funny and informative (if you understand german or english respectively). It was very hot outside, so the interiors understandably were just as hot. There was basically no line, when we got... More
