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! I'd definitely recommend going even if you have been before which I had and I still enjoyed it, maybe even more than my previous... More

I visited the dungeons with friends whilst visiting the city from England. An English tour was arranged for us when we arrived which we thought was very good. The dungeons were a good laugh and were very exciting as we didn't know what was coming next. I would definitely go again :)

Oh boy, I had so much fun ! Somehow for me it was creepy and funny in the same time. Creepy because of the decor, the actors that play well and the situations.

I loved it! I went on the english tour on Friday. some videos were still in German but they were like 1% of the experience and didn't annoy me that much. The Dungeons are well planed, entertaining, scary and fun at the same time. All the actors are excellent and they are always in character which makes the experience realistic... More
