My second time here! This time I did the English tour with my Aussie friend as I wanted to show her the dungeon! We both loved it! Best way to learn about history! Fun Scary and action! Great combination! Would come again for my 3rd time! If you are in Hamburg THIS IS A MUST!

The show is very entertaining and gives a lively introduction into the history of the city of Hamburg. Not too much suitable for little children, as it is basically a kind of horror show.

Our visit to the Hamburg Dungeon was spur of the moment. We had initially wanted to visit the Miniature Wonderland, but due to it being holiday season and a very nice Saturday afternoon the lines were just too long (approximately 2 hour wait). Since the Hamburg Dungeon was right next door and there was only a 10 minute wait we... More

Interesting, but not that exciting. Compared to York & London (England) this dungeon isn't so good, but still worth a visit whilst in Hamburg. Might just be me, but I got the feeling it was a short tour too, even though not many people were there.

Hello Pil G, it is nice to hear that the Hamburg Dungeon was an interesting experience for you. And of course it is difficult to understand the German Shows withourt speaking German. Nevertheless thank you very much for your response. With kind regards for Hamburger Speicherstadt, your Hamburg Dungeon Team More

The hamburg dungeon is very interesting! You will have a look to the past of this city and they did it really good. Some times you get scared but that's okay ! The costumes are detailed and looking quiet authentic! Fantastic "show" the end is one of the best parts !

We attended the 10:00am English version which has the same time slot each day. It's maybe a little pricey at over 24 euro per adult. Not quite as good as it could be after having been to other similar experiences in other parts of the globe and as mentioned in other reviews the information is certainly not educational. My wife...

I did this tour in English. The actor's English was bad, some even missed their lines (which became apparent when an actress talked to an animated skull. It responded to a question she didn't even ask). I did not get any information on the Hamburg's history and I'm not sure, how the rooms we went to are supposed to be... More

A group of friends and I visited the Dungeon in Hamburg. On the whole, the tour was fun and we had a few laughs. Some of the actors are really good, especially the men. The water ride is fun but ridiculously short. The falling "elevator" is a highlight but also of short duration (obviously). I couldn't quite see the connection... More

Because of our short stay in Hamburg, we choose to get a tour in German instead of English wish kind of took a bit off the excitement. Also the long queue ruined it slightly however it was indeed an interesting experience and being declared a witch by a very humorous "priest" brightened up the total experience
