General Entertainment
“Im Hamburger Dungeon wird die die Hamburger Geschichte näher gebracht und du bist Teil der Geschichte. Gemeinsam in einer Gruppe wirst du von verschiedenen Personen der Hamburger Geschichte durch das Gebäude geführt und dir dabei die Geschichte Hamburgs vermittelt. Wer war nochmal Störtebeker und was hatte es mit dem großen Brand auf sich? Du bist nicht nur Zuhörer sondern mitten drin im Geschehen. Es wird lustig und bisschen gruselig zu gleich - der Unterhaltungsfaktor ist auf jeden Fall da!”

“A gorgeous cafe with an excellent brunch on the weekend. Inexpensive and fresh. I love the elegant couches and huge windows. Sometimes it's hard to find a seat. Everyone is friendly and speaks English. Close to the Reeperbahn without the trash.”
