We booked ahead of time with a German friend and brought a large group with children (12 year olds)The actors were in costume and our guide spoke English. It was a walk thru some of the darkest periods in Hamburg's history including the plague! The history of the city is fascinating and now I know why beer is less expensive... More

I am not sure if the Dungeon offers English guided tours. If they do, this is a fabulous experience. If you don't speak German and you would have been in the group I was in, you would have probably disliked it. The tour is inventive, teaches you a little bit about Hamburg's history and it is a little bit like... More

Had to queue for an hour, with nobody on hand to assist with any questions. Two queues and a lot of confusion. Not worth the wait, would never visit this attraction again!!

A very interesting theatrical performance. It sends you to a medieval Hamburg and will give you an experience of being in fire, to be judged by Inquisition, travelling with pirates or being hanged. It worth the money. Mind that children under 10 years are not permitted and you'll have to confirm the age.

A fun way to learn a little more about Hamburg's history from the Great Fire to the Plague. This 90 min guided tour is informative and humorous.

We were a group of 22 international students from all over the world and every one of us simply LOVED it!!! We paid 17.5€ per person for an hour of pure fun! The dungeon isn't really scary (though it has it's moments 😬) The actresses are fantastic, really get into character, the place is big and well decor and the... More

It's a nice experience but I think it's character is lost between being a theatrical experience and a dungeon/roller coaster ride. It's a little bit of both but I think not perfect in either aspect. The actors do their best to convey the various scenes which are based around various stages of Hamburg's history, and the theatrical sceneries are very... More

It was scarry, fun, and very professional. Good to know, that noone would touch you, it helped feeling secure, and have fun being scared.

21€ per person and its just an entire hour of his-storytelling. Small fright pranks and jolts but nothing terrible. More laughs than scares. Won't visit again.

I've been to most of the dungeons around the world and this is possibly the best. It has the usual rooms but the actors take a sadistic pleasure in picking on customers (In the nicest way). The English tour is only once a day but worth the price and is a must do attraction in Hamburg.
