International guided tours on weekendsInternational guests without German language skills need not despair. Guided tours in English take place on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 am. Spaces are limited, so book in advance. If fewer than 4 guests book an English tour, the show may be cancelled - however, in such a case the tickets are valid for German speaking tours and can of course be canceled.

Don't be shyThe gloomy sets in the Dungeon are not for the faint-hearted! But you should also not be shy, as the actors take their roles as nasty dungeon guards quite seriously. The fact that they want to tease you a little is part of the experience. But don't worry, touching is not allowed.

Hamburg Dungeon – all highlights

With live shows and rides, the Hamburg Dungeon brings the dark chapters of the late Middle Ages and early modern period to life. Despite the eerie settings, fun is the main focus. Find out what to expect in the horror cabinet in Hamburg here.

Plague and fire

The live shows in the Hamburg Dungeon illustrate more than vividly that life before the modern era was anything but cozy. Through horror stories, you will learn more about the devastating plague epidemics that wiped out entire cities, or about the disastrous fire that nearly destroyed Hamburg overnight in 1842.

Visiting inquisition and torturer

Nobody wanted to encounter the Inquisition in the late Middle Ages. If you were considered a heretic from their point of view, torture and the death penalty were waiting for you in the worst case. Those who are not shy can face inquisitors and torturers in interactive live shows while the rest of the audience watches. By the way, escaping the Inquisition is also the backdrop for a labyrinth attraction that you have to escape from.

Boat ride and free fall tower

The Hamburg Dungeon also features classic rides - with a historical touch. You shouldn't be afraid of getting wet during the boat ride, which is about a devastating flood in 1717. On the other hand, Drop Dead is a free fall tower for adrenaline junkies.

Pirate adventure

Being a coastal city, Hamburg naturally has no shortage of pirate stories. At the Hamburg Dungeon, you can experience a brief adventure about Klaus Störtebeker, a well-known Hamburg pirate from the 15th century. During this time, the pirate is brought to life using a special video projection.
