What It Is
Climb inside your very own Trabant and start exploring the centre of Berlin in a convoy of Classic East Geman Cars.
Motor along cobblestone streets, past major monuments and top attractions, seeing the German Capital in a way you never have before.
Devoloved in 1957 the Trabant was the answer to an affordable car on the eastern side of the Berlin wall, affectionately doubt the car made of plastic and socialism', the Trabant was light, compact, easily maintained and surprisingly resilient, but it was only after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 when the Trabants really earnt the love of the people. On this 75 minute Trabi Safari you will join with your convoy to cross the former border and drive from East to West, just as thousands of Germans did in Trabants many decades ago.
Your tour will be led by an expert local guide who will be in the first Trabi of the convoy. Through the built-in radio you can enjoy a live audio commentary, hear the stories of 20th century Berlin and learn about the sights and streets you drive past.
Along the way you will see some of the city's most significant sights including the Berlin Cathedral, Brandenburg Gate, Potsdamer Platz, Checkpoint Charlie, East Side Gallery, the TV Tower, the Oberbaum Bridge and the Unter den Linden.
