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 90 minutes, slowly return to the well-lit foyer with a brand new perspective on the world.

Gudrun who was our guide was a kind hearted and very nice person. The whole experience was in German, and our German was limited, but Gudrun did everything she could to help us understand and it ended up being both fun, delicious and interesting!

It was really very impressive and an extreme borderline experience to suddenly be blind and to rely completely on your hearing and on your cane. But it was great fun.

A great self-experience, not only for children / young people - I was still very moved afterwards. Great - do

A good experience. Helpful to better understand the visually impaired.

Unique experience, we really liked it. Can only recommend.
