Great way to spend an afternoon. Takes about an hour. Guided tour, not for faint hearted! Scary and humorous and the same time. Book tickets online as they work out about €5 cheaper than paying at the door.

We visited the dungeon after enjoying the one in London, although this did not meet our expectations! Pretty much the same story line as London and very similar but no where near as good, no ride either where as London had one, quite pricey for what it is. I personally wouldn't reccomend

Very fun activity to do with a group of friends! Would definitely go again. Had a good laugh and a good scare. Very realistic and worth every penny. Very interesting and interactive way of learning history.

We enjoyed visiting the Amsterdam Dungeon and it was definitely a bit of fun! Interesting way to learn a bit of history. Nowhere near as scary as I was hoping for though. Little bit too expensive in my opinion. If the idea of 'audience participation' fills you with dread, this probably isn't an attraction for you as there's a real... More

Way too expensive for what it is. I didn't enjoyed it very much. Don't have high expectation.. not so funny nor scary. 20 euros seems over priced for the attraction, go to other museums instead

What a fantastic place to go to learn a little bit of the history in Amsterdam whilst having fun. The staff clearly enjoy working there & some of them should be on the stage. If you have a nervous disposition this may not be the place for you but thoroughly enjoyed it & good value for money

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.
