Meet the colleagues

Metin Auf Der Rampe

Metin, technical team member

Hey! My name is Metin I started as a host in August 2022. There my job was the interior & exterior coordination as well as operating the rides.
Relatively quickly I slipped into marketing and planned, shot and uploaded content!
After some time and wanting more, I ended up in the tech department and am now partially responsible for the smooth running of each show as well as turning the station theater on & off!

My favorite Merlin moments:

  • The varied work offers an incredible amount of opportunities and new experiences.
  • No two days are the same
  • The team always puts you in a good mood! Everyone is open and listens to you when something is on your mind.

Mina, actor

Hi, I'm Mina and I've been an actress at the Hamburg Dungeon since 2022.

My favorite Merlin moments:

  • We pull people out of their everyday lives and take them into Hamburg's dark past
  • What motivates me is that there is always something new to experience. Despite the same tasks, no two days are the same
  • For Halloween, we put our foot down especially hard. I love that we can always bring new ideas to the house

In the beginning, I worked as a commercial at both SEA LIFE Hannover and the Hamburg Dungeon. This was followed by my transition into the acting team. Through my studies I also found my way into marketing. Thus, I am currently employed at the Hamburg Dungeon both as an actress and as a marketing coordinator.
