This is a brilliant attraction. We had to queue as Amsterdam was very busy but well worth it. Very tongue in cheek scary. It is fun for adults of all ages very like York dungeons I thought a bit more scary

A history of how the people whether criminal or otherwise were treated many years ago. very similar to York dungeon. Where they have actors or actresses performing what was happening at certain times and including some of the visitors in the events

This tour was enjoyable...once it started!! After waiting outside in a queue and getting your photo taken. Guests are thrown in to a tiny cell. While I understand that it all adds to the effect of the tour...on our tour, re room was far too packed and there were people that felt a little weak due to the heat. You... More

Like the title says: it was amusing and, in places, informative about weird/gruesome history of Amsterdam; this being said it understandably didn't go into much detail but it is not a museum so I can't complain. The tour is available in English or generic 'Other'; I went with the English speaking crowd therefore I don't know what happens at non-English... More

I have enjoyed the London and York Dungeons so wanted to make a visit to the Amsterdam Dungeon. Really it was an organised tour. Gone are the days when you can just walk through. There were actors who did small scenarios about the Dutch Inquisition. Jack the Ripper (Which wasn't Dutch at all) , The VOC or Dutch press gang.... More

My friend and I visited 5 years ago and came back to this same attraction. It's moved with the times and it's as good now as it was then. The actors are amazing- they will make you scream and jump! It's worth buying the tickets in advance, and buying them with the other attractions in bulk- saves a lot of... More

I've been there twice. First in 2012 and I was so amazed that I really wanted my family to go there. So we went together now in 2015 and the place didn't change much, apart from the fact they have different tours for Dutch and English speaking people (which was weird as many groups were divided with having both within)...

What an awesome time we had, from start to finish it was hilarious, informative and jumpy in all the right places. Well done guys. It takes a lot to startle a horror and gore junkie like myself & you guys did it with style.

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.
