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. Funny because of the others reactions, he he.. However I would not recommend it to somebody that has heart problems, stay away from it, specially from the... More

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

Just go if you can really speak german. The actors act not pretty well, but it is a good experience. If you know a little bit about the history of Europe your ride can be very exciting and ludic. Not that cheap.

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
