What do you experience in the Exhibition?

Dialogue in the Dark® is an experiential exhibition in complete darkness which you cannot explore on your own.

Your blind host will guide you through the completely darkened exhibition in a small group of no more than 8 people. Equipped with a blind cane, you discover the world that we usually take for granted in a completely new way. You hear, feel and find your bearings in various non-visual situations of daily life; going for a walk in the park, crossing a busy city-street, going on a boat trip as well as  visiting  our Dark Bar. This is an experience  which will  stay alive in your memory long after your visit.

Blind and visually-impaired guides ensure your well-being at every step through this unfamiliar landscape.

The last stop on our tour is at the Dark Bar, where you can talk about your experience over a drink with our guides, who are happy to answer all the questions which naturally arise during the tour. It’s also fun to compare notes with your fellow visitors at this point, and this fascinating experience gradually comes to an end after about 90 minutes, when you will slowly return to the well-lit foyer.

Tours from 1st of October:  Fridays 09.30 – 16.00  //   Saturdays 12.00 – 19.30  //   Sundays 10.00 – 16.30

See nothing - taste everything! With the Original DINNER IN THE DARK

At our DINNER IN THE DARK you won’t just find selected and delicious food on the menu. Rather, it’s an extraordinary experience that completely lives without the sense of vision – but stimulates other senses such as smell, touch and taste even more intensively. Are you curious already? Then set up an appointment right here – for an experience of taste you’ll never forget.

From Dark to Sweet – DINNER IN THE DARK Classic

To make sure that you and your company can enjoy this dinner to the fullest, we offer a little introduction tour in the dark first. Once your eyes become adjusted to the darkness, you’ll be guided to your place by one of our staff members. You can trust them completely, because they know how to deal with darkness because of their own visual disability or blindness.

After that, the next two hours are all about challenging, tickling and rewarding your taste buds. Look forward to pure enjoyment, which combines various seasonal delicacies not only on your plate, but also on your tongue – to create a real taste adventure.

Dinner in the Dark 2.0 - Exhibition & Dinner

For all those for whom a dinner in complete darkness is not enough, we have put together a special offer. At DINNER IN THE DARK 2.0, an experienced guide will take you on a tour through the exhibition DIALOG IM DUNKELN®. You’ll start the exhibition with a short stroll through the ‘Hamburger Stadtpark’ followed by an aperitif in the so-called eat-in kitchen. Afterwards the tour continues on the ‘Reeperbahn’ – with a delicious “starter-stop” at “Kuddel’s Kajüte”. And then? You’ll board the boat towards ‘Finkenwerder,’ which will drop you off at your restaurant on the other side of the ‘Elbe river’, where you can enjoy your main course and dessert in a relaxed atmosphere – of course still in the dark.  Look forward to selected, seasonal delicacies that unfold their intense taste in complete darkness. Experience fun, taste and thrill in an extraordinary atmosphere that you won’t forget in a hurry.

Children's Birthday in the Dark/in Silence

Why not plan your next kids’ party at Dialogue in the Dark? Your guests, both small and big, can look forward to an unforgettable way of celebrating that special day, packed with new and exciting experiences! Equipped with a blind-cane and led by a blind, or visually impaired guide, you will go on a journey together through the experience-rooms of the exhibition. Is this a bridge that I’m on–I can’t see it–but is it really swaying? Am I really onboard a ship and where is the wind blowing from? Is that a real dog barking nearby? Is this how blind people sense the world around them? Together, everyone will help to create a unique birthday card-in Braille, of course!

On the Dialogue in Silence tour, the birthday boy or girl and their guests will get a chance not only to learn hand gestures but also to have fun experimenting with facial gestures,  and communicating with the body and with sign-language. They will have the expert help of a deaf ‘language-teacher’ and discover the fascinating world of non-verbal communication and how we can use it to better understand each other. Children can learn about a whole new world beyond noise, sounds and voices.
