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 offer Dinner in the Dark, Seminars & Trainings in the dark and Dialogue in Silence.

90 minutes in pitch darkness, full of sensorial estimation, ending with a beer in the (pith dark) bar have showed us how dependent of visual information. Suitable for children. For tours in English you have to book in advanced on the phone or go there....More

So, this may not be the best activity for a perfectionist who cannot admit they are not perfect, but for everyone else it will be great! I definitely have perfectionist tendencies, so it was hard for me at times to realize how hard it was...More

It was scary but fun, our trip was on 90 minutes but it felt like 30. It was an eye opener to see how blind people get around and how it feels like. It was cool that the guides also were blind and that they...More

There are 4 locations: park, shop, street and bar. The sounds around you are magnificent and help you to soak up the atmosphere. Guides are blind to. I loved it. The barman even made jokes about colors and other stuff)

We had an amazing, eye opening experience at Dialog in the Dark where you spend 90 minutes in complete darkness (no mobiles or watches allowed). We went through various real life situations walking in a park, crossing a bridge, entering a living room, visiting a...More

There are English speaking guides and when you book you can ask for one. You can book by going to the place in person, I didn't have much luck with the website or by phone. If possible ask for a tour that is only in English... More
