Normally I'd walk past the dungeons in any city without thinking about going in but my friend was eager to go inside. It was a little expensive at €25 but it was great fun. The actors were funny, the right amount of scary and dedicated to their roles. Each room had something to make you laugh. I'd definitely go again!... More

Went here with a friend. They do an English language tour early in the morning (10:00), no other alternative. Actors tell you a bit of Hamburg history and pick out victim/volunteers to act out the Spanish inquisition, pirates etc. My friend is quite tall, so he got picked a lot ;-) . There are a few rides as well, a... More

The act is quite cool, but I actually thought I'd learn more about those times. The actors are pros, really into their act. Expect to be used as a 'volunteer' ;) A good thing is to buy tickets online, cheaper plus you get in faster.

This is so much fun. They just scare you a little bit. Love them also put some Hamburg history into the scene and stories. Fun to see. 很好玩,參加早上10的English group. 會小小嚇你一下但不至於讓你感到不舒服,裡面還有許多場景都設計得很用心,還有很多互動,非常有趣,大人小孩都會喜歡的地方

Went on the English tour and it was well worth the visit. Highly recommended for young adults. Actors were interactive and the couple of rides were fun.

Even if you don't speak german, it deserves a visit (English tour available) this was the firs Dungeon that I have visited and it worth it. From outside it looks small, but it has many scenarios. that are based in disasters that happened in Hamburg . It opens at 10 am and depending the time of the year, it closes... More

Well worth a visit, great visual and verbal displays, need translator if non german speaking. Good history presentation of Hamburg and very interesting. Not for fainthearted as there are some attractions inside that are like show rides. Well done and if you have never done one of Merlin entertainments Dungeons then do this.

Hey Andygrey1, Thank you for your great review. We also provide English tours from Friday to Sunday at 10am and for groups we also offer pre booked tours at 4pm during the week. And everyone who doesn't want to go on our rides can skip them, so even the fainthearted are more than welcome to visit ;) Have a horrible... More
