We have been to English version (which is only possible to take couple of days a week and at 10 am). We bought tickets in advance (on official website via credit card). So no queues... The show (can't say that it is just regular excursion) was very cool! historical facts are much more interesting if to add medieval looking actors,... More

We went there thinking we could visit but the line was around the corner of people waiting to get in, not even to buy tickets as they have been sold out for weeks

Hi J183, Thanks for taking the time for a feedback. We are already working on a plan how we can offer more English tours since more and more international visitors are in town. By the way we already offer another tour on Friday at 10am and during the week (Monday to Thursday) you can book an English tour at 4pm.... More

After a shaky start (took the money twice when booking on-line) and told us to come back from 2pm to 4pm as only time they would be doing an English session, we eventually got in about 4.20pm. Once in though we had a great time. Very interactive and the actors were great. Was my favourite part of the trip apart... More

Normally I'd walk past the dungeons in any city without thinking about going in but my friend was eager to go inside. It was a little expensive at €25 but it was great fun. The actors were funny, the right amount of scary and dedicated to their roles. Each room had something to make you laugh. I'd definitely go again!... More

Went here with a friend. They do an English language tour early in the morning (10:00), no other alternative. Actors tell you a bit of Hamburg history and pick out victim/volunteers to act out the Spanish inquisition, pirates etc. My friend is quite tall, so he got picked a lot ;-) . There are a few rides as well, a... More
