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

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
