“London should be better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

Just go if you can really speak german. The actors act not pretty well, but it is a good experience. If you know a little bit about the history of Europe your ride can be very exciting and ludic. Not that cheap.

“Brilliant !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

I went on the English language tour and really enjoyed it. The actors spoke fantastic English on the whole - especially the guy doing the bit about Klaus Stortebeker - he was great. Same tried and tested Dungeon format that has seen me visit nearly all of their attractions. I would very much reccomend this as something to do in Hamburg. Only thing is, you will have to get up early for the English language tour as it begins at 10h prompt so I would strongly advice going out boozing on the Reeperbahn the night before !

“Funny and good entertainment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

Very good, funny and elaborate entertainment. Actors are good, set are very complex plus two rides. The only problem for us was language, it it 99% in German but I cannot complain about that as it is the same as theater or movie. A bit pricey. Visit if you not afraid and afraid of German!

“Good tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

Not as scary as the leaflets would lead visitors to believe but it's a good outing for those relatively new to Hamburg. The tour lasts around 1 - 1 & a half hours so make time for this. There are English tours on the weekends & bank holidays from 10.00am. However there is a small part which is in German. I was a little disappointed with this because it should have had subtitles - especially when they have English visitors. However, overall, it was a good attraction.

“Good entertainment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

Our family participated tour given in German although our ability to understand the language was limited. However, we missed on some part of the actors work. We prebooked tickets via internet and it worked well. Guidebook provided to us was accidentally in German but was some weeks later changed English one - postal system between Germany and Finland works well. In the beginning of the tour all the participants we collected in a tiny room and we have short introduction, and one of us was selected as a "victim". Of course the selected one was our 14 yo Iina who tried to say that "Ich spreche nicht Deutch". "Even better" they replied and everybody was so cheerful that this Finnish girl was selected (hopefully she will come back ;)). Altogether Dungeon was rather nice experience, Not so special but a lot of entertainment.
