Very scary experience but very entertaining! Brilliant actors who engage the crowd at all times! Groups are just the right size and the queue was not too long! Would definitely go to the dungeons again after this experience!

We really enjoyed our visit to the Amsterdam dungeon. The queues were slow though. If you go after 16:00 then you pay €3 more to have an extra part of the experience added on, which we thought was worth it. On the door tickets are more expensive. So we decided to buy tickets from the ticket places scattered around Amsterdam... More

We decided to visit the Amsterdam Dungeon during out short break in the city based on a recommendation from a colleague. We have previously visited the dungeon in Warwick Castle, so we knew what to expect, however I personally think that the one in Amsterdam is better. The background story is well linked with the history of the city, and... More

My friend and I had a fun time visiting this scary museum/show that was 80 minutes long. Being a history nerd, I wanted to learn about Amsterdam's "dark history" and this visit absolutely did the job. This was an interactive show and participation is key to having fun. I was "voluntold" twice to participate (** spoiler alert **) - the... More

You can choose either ab English or a Dutch tour so it is great for tourists as well. It takes you back to dark times in Amsterdam and actors are very good.

This made our last day in Amsterdam, my partner came even though he didn't want too. When he got picked on twice I thought he would hate it even more. But he didn't he loved it and so did I. Although halfway through I wanted to leave because it was so scary! Bravo to the actor's and actresses involved. As... More

This is just a fake haunted house tourist attraction... If that's your thing - you're gonna love it! It's pretty much exactly what you'd expect from something like this, though it is cool that the scary performances are actually grounded in historical events in Amsterdam's past... even if it does, in the attempt to amp up the creepy level, almost...

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood 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.
