Tours in English only take place at 10 am on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. Places are limited, so book ahead to make sure you get a spot!
Be prepared for audience participation, and don’t try to hide from the actors! They’ll only be more likely to notice you if you’re obviously trying to avoid their gaze. Don’t worry about it too much, the interactive parts are generally intended to be comical rather than scary, and the actors aren’t allowed to touch guests.
If your trip to the Hamburg Dungeon has inspired you to learn more about the city’s history, take a trip to the Internationales Maritimes Museum or the Hamburgmuseum and discover which stories were fact and which were famous legends!
