Really fun show. Remember to order a show in English. Otherwise this really requires good German skills. Save money and time by ordering on the Internet in advance. It is a kind of theater where the audience is guided through different rooms, with actors having roles. The actors lets the audience be a part of the show, and it is... More

1. If you expect a dungeon to be scary, don't go for the Hamburg one. 2. For people not speaking German it is a complete waste of money and time. 3. There is a lot of information given, however not so much about the actual history. All in all, although the actors are doing a good job, a dungeon is... More

The English version does NOT give enough history of Hamburg as the German version. But it was entertaining besides that.

Fun experience, however you need to speak German to get the most out of it. I only understand a little so it was a little bit hard for me. Anyone can do it, but trust me, you want to at least know the basics so you can fully be apart of the experience!

Good entertainment. Really feels like you are taking back in time. A bit scary in the beginning, but after a while not so much. Interesting way to learn a bit about the dark side of hamburgs history. You can feel that it's really well organized and that there is put a lot of thought into giving the consumer a great... More

Well done. Informative and worth the money. I would recommend everyone visiting Hamburg and having some spare time to visit this one. It is a "guided" tour and takes more or less 90 minutes. Funny and informative is always a good combination .-)

My husband and I did this and I have to say for the most part it was pretty enjoyable. Just scary enough (mostly just creepy). But, by the end of it, I was sick of it. I think total from beginning to end we were in there for about an hour and 1/2. Which doesn't seem like that much, but... More

We loved the visit to Hamburger Dungeon on our Christmas holiday in Germany. The English speaking tour was available only at 10 in the morning, so we went for it, though i can imagine the evening visit would have been even more fun. The Hamburg Dungeon is a series of locations with actors impersonating a person from the given time... More

In the dungeon you'll be surprised by the stories about the cities. The good actors interact a lot with a nice sense of humor, but can scare you every now and then too. It takes about 1,5 hrs. I had a good laugh and think it was worth the money.

We went to the attraction as part of our trip - there was an English tour of the dungeons available to us when we went. I was really impressed and myself and my friends loved it!
