It was exciting and scary at the same time but still having fun. The actors brought the shows across very well. It is definitely worth it and I would recommend a visit to the Hamburg Dungeon.

Was mega good. Great done by the actors too. Every room was well made, sometimes funny, sometimes creepy, recommended to everyone.

It is a really entertaining and exciting excursion. The actors are very Hanseatic. Everything fits.

A great experience, a mixture of ghost train and history lesson with great actors.

An amusing journey through the history of Hamburg can only be recommended
