The GDR’s Daily Driver…

Did you know that 80 percent of all GDR citizens drove a Trabant? Well, the choice of motor vehicles wasn’t really that big in East Germany under the SED. Nevertheless, the sheer number of Trabis on the East German roads made the two-stroke engine the Volkswagen of the Republic.

Since 2013, an entire museum has been dedicated to this East German original, which went into series production in 1958 at the VEB automobile plant in Zwickau.

In the Trabi Museum Berlin, which is located directly at Checkpoint Charlie, you can delve deeper into the history and development stages of the Trabi. On display are, among other things, true rarities such as the Trabant P70 with a wooden chassis, as well as the camping Trabi and NVA military vehicles.

The racing version of the Trabant 601 is also worth seeing – even if it’s hard to believe that a Trabi ever made it onto the race track…

If you would like to get behind the wheel yourself, then you are warmly invited to take part in a Trabi safari on the streets of Berlin.

The Trabi Museum is easy to reach and is only a few 100 meters from the Kochstr. (Checkpoint Charlie) subway station.
