Definitely worth a visit! Book tickets in advance because the queues can be lengthy! in honesty, i was petrified going in, because i'm not good with things like darkness and people jumping out at you, but after coming out i realised it wasn't as scary as i thought! Don't get me wrong it is jumpy, but it's one of those... More

Went here today and it was amazing! Staff were awesome and very friendly, actors were really good and funny and as always I got picked out haha (was both times I went to Edinburgh dungeons too). Highly recommended. Took about 1hr 45mins to go through.

My husband and I were looking for something to do as we had a day to pass in Amsterdam. We decided on the Amsterdam Dungeon and we loved it. We would highly recommend a visit to this tourist attraction. Although not recommended for children as dark and quite scary.

Thoroughly enjoyed our trip and experience at the dungeons. Was reasonably priced, very informative and a lot of fun. Guests are chosen to take part in sections of the tour which was fun, and as people are on holiday and more willing to take part. Learnt a lot about the history of Amsterdam both the people and areas. the staff... More

We bought a combination ticket to the museum and Madam Tussauds. Well worth it for the Dungeon alone. The play/story etc. was well performed and the actors/actresses really put effort into their individual performances. Thoroughly enjoyed and well worth a visit.

I bought a combination ticket with Madame Tussauds as my daughter wanted to visit MT and it seemed good value. Whilst we were somewhat disappointed with Madame Tussauds we both really enjoyed the dungeon - scary and funny in equal measure. We've visited the London Dungeon before and both agreed that the Amsterdam version is better!

This attraction is along the main street where u can buy a combo ticket with madame tussauds to save some money. Inside, once the tour starts, they have actors who do a good job narrating how tough life was back then. But they inject lots of humour to keep the experience light hearted as opposed to depressing. Overall a good... 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.
