Amsterdam Dungeon Tours

star-4
145 Reviews
Amsterdam Dungeon
Amsterdam Dungeon is a journey into the city’s gory past—petulant plagues and torture of the Dark Age, the Spanish Inquisition, scurvy-ridden sailors along the riverbanks, and more. Through simulator rides, interactive shows, and a scary labyrinth, this popular attraction mixes 500 years of horror with a bit of kitsch, humor, and thrills.

The Basics
Eleven terrifying interactive shows replete with live actors and special effects recount the savage brutality of the goriest moments in Amsterdam’s history. Travelers can explore Amsterdam Dungeon independently or as part of a more extensive half- or full-day sightseeing tour, via hop-on hop-off bus, canal cruise, bike, or on foot.

Specialized tours may incorporate a beer cruise, a meal, or a drink at a local bar. Trace eight centuries of Dutch history and cultural traditions on tours that include the Damrak and other top attractions, such as the Royal Palace, Rembrandt House Museum, Anne Frank House, Dam Square, and De Wallen, the city’s red-light district. Some tours include round-trip hotel transport, food and drink, and/or admission fees

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Amsterdam Dungeon is ideal for history and horror buffs, though is not the best attraction for small children or the faint of heart. 
  • Avoid long lines at this popular attraction with an advance-purchase skip-the-line ticket. 
  • Children under age 15 receive discounted admission.
  • All tour shows except for the last are accessible to standard wheelchairs, but not electric wheelchairs or scooters.

How to Get There
Amsterdam Dungeon is located on Rokin, in the heart of Amsterdam. Take a taxi to the dungeon or, from Amsterdam Centraal Station, it’s a 15-minute walk through Dam Square. If driving, parking is available at the site.
      
When to Get There
Tours run daily, starting at 11am and running every 10 minutes until 6pm most days; check the website for seasonal and holiday hours. Amsterdam’s peak travel season is during the warm summer months. For fewer visitors and lovely mild temperatures, visit between April and May or September and November.

Going Deeper into the Gore
The the Amsterdam Dungeon, exhilarating interactive highlights include the Council of Blood, where the vicious blood-curdling primeval law enforcement that mutilated and burned the citizenry is on display. In Labyrinth of the Lost, walk through a treacherous maze where scofflaws would be led, through dark streets to precarious ledges and canals. And aboard an 18th-century naval vessel, sailors reminisce about a life at sea in those days, namely the backbreaking work and contracting all kinds of contagious diseases.
Address: Rokin 78, Amsterdam, Netherlands
Admission: Varies

This was NOT worth the money or time. We were crammed in with a group of students and there was barely room for us to stand in any of the rooms we were led into. It was WAY to crowded, and I'm not sure that we would have enjoyed it even it hadn't been. Kept looking for an exit to get out!
