The Hamburger Dungeon was different from but much more than I expected. I expected a theatric show about Hamburg history. What I received was 100 minutes of history light infused with terror, special effects, and rides. The history portion is weak (dates are sketchy or not at all stated). There was a section on the Inquisition, which really made no... More

If you've ever been to a Dungeon in another city, you know what you're in for. There are English tours available and I highly recommend you book one of those if you don't speak German. You will learn about the history of Hamburg in a very entertaining and interactive way. From the inquisition over the black plague to piracy and... More

The place where Hamburg history is told in a scary and entertaining way. The "smuggling" ride and the free-fall were a cool addition. Recommended, although not sure it's worth 25.50 E. Probably because of all the nice actors who performed very well and involved the public in the stories. All except the first "Igor" guy, who was bored and did... More

Waited in a short 15 minute queue, testament no doubt to the popularity and success of this attraction. On arriving at the ticket desk we were informed it was a 1.5 hour spoken tour only available in German!! Hugely disappointed that in today's age no translation service either spoken or recorded was available, fail to see how this can call... More

We have been to English version (which is only possible to take couple of days a week and at 10 am). We bought tickets in advance (on official website via credit card). So no queues... The show (can't say that it is just regular excursion) was very cool! historical facts are much more interesting if to add medieval looking actors,... More

We went there thinking we could visit but the line was around the corner of people waiting to get in, not even to buy tickets as they have been sold out for weeks

Good location, really interested in going but they only offer two English speaking tours per week (10:00 am Saturdays and Sundays)

Hi J183, Thanks for taking the time for a feedback. We are already working on a plan how we can offer more English tours since more and more international visitors are in town. By the way we already offer another tour on Friday at 10am and during the week (Monday to Thursday) you can book an English tour at 4pm.... More

I visited with friends and despite it was to me not scary at all, we had a lot of fun there. It's very interactive. I was impressed by how big the installations seem to be. The little spin wheel with gift at the door was one of my favorite things.

After a shaky start (took the money twice when booking on-line) and told us to come back from 2pm to 4pm as only time they would be doing an English session, we eventually got in about 4.20pm. Once in though we had a great time. Very interactive and the actors were great. Was my favourite part of the trip apart... More
