The idea is simple: In completely darkened rooms blind people lead small groups of guests through an exhibition in which everyday situations are experienced altogether differently, without eyesight. In the dark, the daily routine becomes a new experience. A reversion of roles is created: sighted people are confronted with different ways of perception; blind people provide them with security and a sense of orientation transmitting a world without pictures.In addition to the exhibition, we still offer the Dinner in the Dark, Seminars & Trainings in the dark, Brunch in Silence and other great events.The response is remarkable: Since 1988 "Dialog im Dunkeln" was presented in more than 30 countries and over 130 cities worldwide and it has reached up to 8 million visitors.

This is a profoundly thought-provoking, enlightening and (apparently) unique experience, and something that we would recommend to anyone who is visiting Hamburg. It is superb. The concept could not be simpler: set up various rooms and spaces, turn out all the lights, and invite people to experience, for an hour and 45 minutes, the life of a blind person. Some... More

Me and my wife, wanted to go whit an English guide because my wife do not understand or speak German. The tour was whit 7 others all Germans. Because of that the tour guide didn't speak much English, and the language was poor. Also because we where that many people on the tour, you didn't have the space to explore... More

During a stay in Hamburg we went to the office to book a tour. We were second in line about 5 min, but when it was our turn the staff woman had to tend to a school group. Again we waited 5 to 10 minutes. In the mean time a line of 10 to 15 people had formed. When it... More

Booked the 90 min tour Dialog im Dunkeln. Really interesting experience with guides that lead you around different kind of environment where you feel, hear and touch and experience the world in absolute darkness. Recommended!!

A blind guide is leading you through the house which is packed with smells, noises and you can feel your surrounding in the total darkness. If you would like, you can have a drink and a chat with your guide in the end and still in the dark. Great to switch intensity of senses to everything but seeing. Best with... More

It is one of the most interesting tours I have ever taken! to experience other senses in a more accentuated way was fantastic. I did not feel scared or insecure, the guide was with us the whole time making sure we were alright, I totally recommend it!

Dialog im Dunkeln was unbelievable. You are guided through a completely dark world by a blind guide. They make you feel very safe and it is really amazing to experience how they live every day. It is a remarkable experience and I would highly recommend going to check this out.

This was very interesting, and also overwhelming. Not to recommend if you tend to be claustrophobic though... You go through a circuit in pitch darkness, with a blind guide... including a visit to the bar! Found it stressful, but definitely interesting. Probably would not have done it alone...
