Hamburg: Dialogue in the Dark® Exhibition Guided Tour

1. Hamburg: Dialogue in the Dark® Exhibition Guided Tour

See nothing but discover a lot on a visit to the unique Dialogue in the Dark® exhibition. Take a safe and humorous guided walk through the completely darkened exhibition with your blind host in a small group of no more than 8 people. Get to know each other without leaning on appearances, overcome prejudices, and handle daily situations without relying on your eyes. Equipped with a blind cane, discover the world that we usually take for granted in a completely new way. Hear, feel, and find your bearings in various non-visual situations of daily life, like going for a walk in the park and crossing a busy city street. Enjoy an experience that will live long in your memory as even buying something in the dark turns into fun. The last stop on the tour is at the Dark Bar where you can talk about your experience over a drink with the guides. Ask your guide all the questions which naturally arise during the tour and compare notes with your fellow visitors. As this fascinating experience gradually comes to an end after about 60 minutes, slowly return to the well-lit foyer with a brand new perspective on the world.

It's fascinating how quickly your head switches and you get a sense of what your surroundings might look like and what you're hearing when you can't see anything. I can recommend it to everybody

A compelling and original experience. Was in a group of 9 people being led by a blind host through a number of rooms in complete darkness. Can’t recommend this activity enough.

A very impressive experience. Dialogue in the dark (and other "dialogues") should be mandatory for politicians and everyone involved in inclusion.

A must for every visit to Hamburg! Really well done and organized! And so important for everyone!

Love it. Super experiential and guide makes you v comfortable.
