such a time we had in this place. the whole thing is amazing and the people acting put on a good show. in each room they always pick someone out of the crowd! it's all very well done. would definitly recommend people to do it. it's reasonably priced aswell.

I am the biggest wuss, but I am so glad I done this. Waited in the queue for a while but that was to be expected. Really don't know how the actors managed to keep a straight face, they were so so good - especially at giving people a fright! ha ha! I must admit, I did come out shaking,... More

We loved our visit here it's scary and funny at the same time. Definitely worth a trip :) my only complaint is we had to wait a while before it began but I guess it was busy. Sit at the back if u don't want to take part lol

The Amsterdam Dungeon was a great experience. We bought the dual tickets that included Madame Tussaud's. They do a great job of pulling you into the experience as soon as you walk into the door. After the lady checked our tickets, there was a rather long wait to start, roughly 25 minutes. I think that was longer than normal though.... More

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

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.
