The dungeon was not what I was expecting at all. I thought it would be a guided tour through a dungeon in an old building.It was an interactive tour through different sets with characters telling a story through the ages. It was a bit of fun some scary elements to it probably a better one for the family.

Wasn't sure what to expect initially but decided to visit and being their half term week was pleasantly surprised to only queue for about 20 minutes. It's not the cheapest at €19 per person. You are guided through about 10 different themed areas with live actors giving a view of life back in the 1500s onwards and includes involuntary audience... More

Hahaha. I really get scared easily, but I have this talent of putting myself into this tricky, unescapable situations. I had fun and got scared. Mostly in the final chamber.

Was so exited to visit the Amsterdam dungeons, so didn't mind paying the price. It was so creepy at the beginning. Didn't think much of the story line, didn't really get as scary as I thought it would. Abit disappointed but worth a visit as it is something different!

Enjoyable 80 minute or so tour through time. Parents and 2 teens went in October at 5 pm as it is better value after 5 pm (or before noon). Learned some history of Amsterdam's "darker" days and had some laughs.

I was in Amsterdam from the 10th to the 14th of October and decided to go to the Amsterdam dungeons as I had heard good things, we were greeted by actors who were great at their job and made us feel welcome but also made us feel the scary atmosphere! The girl at the counter before we entered the dungeons... More

I call Amsterdam Dungeon, "Madame Tussaud's Sister". It is expensive (almost 20 EUR), it is boring and it is amateurish. Why would you need a boring roller coaster ride in a place where you need to explain the Spanish Inquisition or Amsterdam's Dark History? If I compare this with the tours to Edinburgh vaults, Amsterdam Dungeon gives me the impression... More

We loved the Amsterdam Dungeon. The actors were funny and played their parts very well. The experience was to give us some scary insights into the Amsterdam history through the years. At some points the experience was a little scary and many visitors were quite tentative to proceed from one room to another. The use of lights and sound was... 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.
