Amsterdam Dungeon

Rokin 78, Amsterdam, Netherlands

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

BEAUTIFUL AND SERENE
It was an amazing experience!!! Beautiful scenery everywhere from beginning to end. Our two hosts were fantastic! They were extremely informative and took us on a great journey. Don't think twice, just book it!!! I recommend around 1730 when it gradually gets dark and everything is wonderfully lit. You'll get to experience a little bit of both (Day & Night)

Just knowing that people live in the beautifully landscaped area across from the canal and trying to imagine what life is like every day. Just cruising down the canal was so peaceful and the weather was gorgeous and our hostess guide was adorable and knowledgeable.

The cruise is especially nice at sunset. Too bad there are no non-alcoholic beavarages on the ship. Other than that, the captain was funny.

Amsterdam Guided Evening Canal Cruise with Bar on Board
Great short trip around the canals. Boat was open style and pretty packed. Guides were fun but young. Doing it over I’d pick a nicer boat with more space, wine included and maybe more history oriented guiding.

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.
