This place was so good!! It offers history of Amsterdam in a slightly scary very fun way. The actors involve you in the story as you go through the dungeons. It had 5 different rooms and a different scenario in each room. I would definitely recommend this place to visit. I would advise getting a ticket online as you beat... More

The dungeon was hilarious with a group of fiends but also terrifying at some points. Great story telling and actors with interesting stories and way to involve the audience. Would recommend if don't mind being scared but also a great laugh.

This was part of a ticket package which included Madame Tussaudes, the dungeons and a canal cruise. I have been a few times to Edinburgh Dungeons so wasn't sure what Amsterdam would be like, but I can say that even though some parts are the same, I was frightened the whole way through. They were all great actors and made... More

me and my friend decided to visit the dungeons, as it was halloween weekend the time we went to amsterdam so thought this would be eventful. Would advise to book online as we did as it almost half the price online so much cheaper and go early or in the evening as cheaper, plus not much queuing. The overall experience... More

Having been to the London Dungeons, my friend and I were intrigued to see how different Amsterdam Dungeons would be. As we expected, it was fairly similar, however it was interesting to learn some of Amsterdam's history. If anything, it was a lot more scarier than London. The staff were great and overall, it was a fun experience! We just... 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.
