I went on the English language tour and really enjoyed it. The actors spoke fantastic English on the whole - especially the guy doing the bit about Klaus Stortebeker - he was great. Same tried and tested Dungeon format that has seen me visit nearly all of their attractions. I would very much reccomend this as something to do in... More

Very good, funny and elaborate entertainment. Actors are good, set are very complex plus two rides. The only problem for us was language, it it 99% in German but I cannot complain about that as it is the same as theater or movie. A bit pricey. Visit if you not afraid and afraid of German!

Not as scary as the leaflets would lead visitors to believe but it's a good outing for those relatively new to Hamburg. The tour lasts around 1 - 1 & a half hours so make time for this. There are English tours on the weekends & bank holidays from 10.00am. However there is a small part which is in German.... More

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

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.
