This wasn't what I thought it would be. I thought it would be more of a walk through and read about the history sort of deal but it was much more of a theatrical performance. We quite enjoyed it afterwards. There was some funny parts, gross parts and scary parts.

The actors really make the dungeons what they are, you cannot tell they do the same thing over and over again as they are very enthusiastic. Would recommend to families and couples!

I had wanted to go here since the start of my trip and eventually convinced my boyfriend to go too. It was so much fun. The stories are so exciting and the actors really help bring them to life. Whilst in the queue, an actor tried to scare me so I laughed in his face which meant I kept getting... More

I was hoping this would be a little scary, but was very disappointed. The scariest thing about this was the sound effects in the WC's. The staff and crew inside knew exactly what they were doing and it was a funny and interesting little tour. The staff talking to people standing in the queue was a bit annoying and kept... More

Queue wasnt too much of an issue except that one of the staff members kept trying way to hard to get us to buy the "all inclusive" ticket even when we said at least 3 times we didnt want one, then he rudely asked why not. Then kept pushing further asking if we had been at another maddame tussaud in... More

It was more like a cheap haunted house, very disappointed. Long wait to be bunched up in a group for a room to room tour that's not a dungeon at all.. Herded through like cattle in 90 degrees Fahrenheit/ 30 plus Celsius temperatures.. Then you get the sales of the pictures they took of you.. Sorry, but I rate this... More

My partner has never been to our own London Dungeon so on our trip to Dam I mentioned visiting the Amsterdam Dungeon. I really enjoyed all the historical facts that the Amsterdam Dungeons brings to this experience, I felt like I had walked away knowing that I had used this experience to learn something new. I was in awe by... More

At first I was very sceptic because when I visited the Dungeon in London I was so afraid that it wasn't entertaining at all. But the Dungeon in Amsterdam is a perfect mixture of fear and fun. I loved the performances of the various actors and also some special effects were involved that helped to create a good fear/fun mixture.

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.
