  • The tour was full of many surprises. The actors were super and very amusing. We can recommend a visit.

  • 1 h 30 trip through various pieces retracing some dark moments of the city of Hamburg. Start with the photos: one on the scaffold and another with a axe in hand, this heralds a dark journey,... Group of thirty people travelling, an elevator that moves a lot, the executioner and his tools of torture, to the city of Hamburg which burns, to a judge of the period of the inquisition, a doctor and the botulinum plague, to Captain pirate pirates and a boat trip to a woman who killed her husband with a hammer a trip in a small boat at traffickers and a witch chained in a prison. It is very well done with great actors who take their role to heart. All done, if you have the courage by a free fall... Good trip, two pictures for 15 euros at the output.

  • Great experience. The history of hamburg in a spooky, entertaining way and fun in a group. It's not too scary so I would say it is fine for younger ones from 8-10 years too. The entry is worth the visit and sometimes there are voucher you can get in cafés or restaurants in Hamburg that offer a discount or 2-for-1.
  • This is so much fun. They just scare you a little bit. Love them also put some Hamburg history into the scene and stories. Fun to see.
  • Exciting story. Enthusiastic actors, albeit very young. Atmospheric. Long line at the entrance. Should have more English tours.
  • Wirklich klasse
  • Funny experience and with good actors and history of Hamburg. Would go again.
