The old library of dark history

Old Library of Hamburg

The past will be relived

In the frosty old library the Dungeon’s keeper will welcome you with dark stories about the city. Listen to his gruesome stories about the plague, brutal tortures, the heat of the great fire, the execution of an infamous pirate and many other hair-raising legends.


  • Whether the Dungeon’s Keeper prepares you well for what is ahead.
  • The gruesome journey that is ahead of you.
  • How to handle possessed books and candles.


A very special video technique is being used to create the effect of the keeper’s talking head. Images are projected on the cast of an actual head of an actor. These images are filmed while the actor's head is secured so that it won't move. The actor is reliant on his or her facial expressions to deliver the best effects of the story. The projections and the cast create the perfect optical illusion, something you would never experience in a museum!
