Experienced what is meant to be a family friendly attraction. For the faint hearted among us, it was a screaming fest from start to finish. Having said that, I absolutely adored it, it was brilliantly constructed, the English was perfect and overall it was funny. Do not miss if you are travelling to Amsterdam!

I was looking for something to do on a rainy day and the dungeon was right across the street from my hotel. I doubted that it would be very scary--at best I thought it would be a corny funny type of show. I was wrong! It was funny, it was interactive, it was scary--it wasn't corny at all. The best...

This was one of my favourite attractions whilst in Amsterdam, can be very tense at times but is full of humour. If you are the unlucky one like me who gets pulled to the front of the group in what is called "The Court" then you should expect screams as that is what happened to me. Overall a very good... More

I went here with my wife and was very reluctant. It turned out to be a lot of fun. Yes there's some waiting times but it's what you expect for a tourist attraction. I found it all worth the wait and would definitely recommend.

This was certainly one of the highlights of the Amsterdam trip. The actors are amazing and the entire setup feels very real. I was picked up as a forced volunteer by many of the performers and it was great fun

Well I went there alone, after hearing great things. I don't recommend being alone though, I think it's a lot better with people. First I was worried that it'll be too childish, but I had great fun and learned a lot about Amsterdam in the dark ages. also it's a really funny experience. it is great for kids that are... More

Normally avoid tourist traps but heard good reviews of the dungeon. Clearly much has been invested in this destination in the various rooms and actors. Was part of a large crowd so often felt like cattle getting slowly pushed room to room, only to spend a minute or two before moving on. Tough to see if you are short like... More

We kind of regretted going here when we got scared even before it started, the actors were very good and it was not only scary but also funny. Would recommend this to anyone who likes horror :)

Dear visitor, Thank you for your review. We think you're brave by following the tour even though you were sacred. Others who are not so fearless can leave the show at any given point. Just let the actor know. kind regards, The Amsterdam Dungeon More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
