The Amsterdam Dungeon

The Amsterdam Dungeon

Experience Amsterdam’s most gruesome history

Do you have nerves of steel and a good sense of humor? Then you are at the right place at The Amsterdam Dungeon! Horrifying stories are brought to life by terribly good actors. On film-worthy sets you experience different shows with other heretics. You see, hear and smell the history of Amsterdam come to life. Inside, you cannot trust anyone and you are part of the story. So be prepared to scream at the stake, chuckle at the bilious (but clearly insane) judge and shiver when you stand face to face with the executioner.

The fun part at The Amsterdam Dungeon is that you are really part of it and one of the first things that “scares” you is that what you experience comes across as realistic – because everything you see here is based on historical facts.

Hello, I’m Alison and I love my city. I’ve always believed Amsterdam has so much more to offer than what the guidebooks tell you. But as a visitor, it’s all too easy to get caught up in the highlights and miss out on having an authentic Amsterdam experience. That’s why I’m passionate about showing you my city from a truly local perspective.
