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.

Brilliant tour with the highlight DRAGQueen Veuve Noire. We really enjoyed it and it was very interesting and very funny. The insights into life in the neighborhood as a DRAGQueen were explained to us in a great way and not a dry eye stayed. The history of the Reeperbahn and all the trimmings was also explained very well. It was absolutely fun

It was an amazing and very unique experience! I recommend it to everyone. Is the best way to get in the shoes of blind people and to discover your approach of the world with the other senses.
