From the 15th March 2013, you can visit the Berlin Dungeon in Spandauer Straße in Berlin-Mitte, between Hackescher Markt and Alexanderplatz. The museum is always open from Monday to Sunday from 10am to 6pm.
In the Berlin Dungeon, you can experience a breathtaking 70-minute journey through the whole of 800 years of Berlin history. Experience an unforgettable journey through Berlin with many modern special effects. An exciting raft ride and shows with professional actors in German and English are waiting for you in the Berlin Dungeon. 


Feel the darkness up to 12 metres deep and dare to go on the only indoor free-fall tower in Berlin, the "Exitus", which will make you laugh and scream. You will also encounter dark figures from Berlin's past, such as the notorious serial killer Carl Großmann. The spooky element is the main event at nine stations, which is why children up to the age of 14 must be accompanied by parents in the Berlin Dungeon, because the labyrinth of the lost, the deadly plague in the monastery street, and the frightening torture chamber are not for the faint hearted. 

Who should visit the Berlin Dungeon?

In principle, the Berlin Dungeon has spooky fun for everyone. However, we recommend only children 10 years and up visit. It also may not be suitable for people with heart problems or anxious people with weak nerves. Children under 15 may only enter the Berlin Dungeon accompanied by parents. So be prepared for some spooky fun and take a journey back to the dangerous past of Berlin. [instagram:]

English language shows in the Berlin Dungeon

The Berlin Dungeon also has English-language shows every day at 2:30pm and 4:45pm so that all courageous visitors can understand the shows in the Berlin Dungeon. At the entrance the staff will tell you about the English language shows.*

Photos in the Berlin Dungeon

Taking photos in the Berlin Dungeon is strictly forbidden as this may distract the actors and ruin special effects.
A snapshot shot will be taken of you at the beginning of your journey in the Berlin Dungeon. You can see it at the end of the tour and take it home with you.
