A Trabbant in an alley: a classic scene from the 90s. Pollution regulation now means the few Trabbies are seen on Hungary`s streets. This tiny East German car, made from resin and cardboard, is now a collector`s item.
East German sports car racing never happened, right? But it did! During the Soviet occupation of East Germany (GDR), a group of courageous individuals formed a racing collective. Ernst Ring, formerly of Munich, made an impression on the GDR leadership and was able to convince them that the successes of the GDR in motor sport would be beneficial to the reputation of the young country. One of first races the collective held was the race in Halle-Saale in September 1951, won by a BMW 328 clone.
In this Trabi Safari, you will get the opportunity to explore East Berlin in an iconic Trabant vehicle that was a symbol of the East German car industry. Discover the remnants of Berlin's East and West divide and how Germany's capital city has transformed since reunification.
