It is definitely recommended to visit the restaurant Blindekuh , which means “blind cow”. This is a very unusual establishment. All the staff here are blind, but they feel pretty comfortable. There is no light in the dining room, even the sun’s rays do not get here. This is due to the fact that in the dark, the appetite and taste of the human body increase. However, to get to this restaurant, you need to book a table several months in advance.
