Hamburg’s ‘Gängeviertel‘

dark heart of Hamburg

Almost 500 years ago Hamburg’s historic alleyway neighborhood, the ‘Gängeviertel‘, reached from as far as the historic ‘Speicherstadt’ to the harbor embankment. People dwelled poorly and in very cramped conditions, but with a great sense of belonging. The police struggled to get any headway among the tight and rambling back streets. This is where dock workers, scoundrels, and cutthroats went about their business in the dingy pubs and narrow passageways.

Experience this wonderfully terrible time up close at Hamburg Dungeon.  Make the acquaintance of Hannes and Berta during our ‘Gängeviertel’ show, and from there begin your exciting journey through the dark and nerve-wracking Hamburg of past.

This show requires the utmost concentration by its actor. As our tours are offered both in German and in English, the actor must be able to switch between languages at a moment’s notice in order to deliver the same nerve-wracking experience every time.
