Trabi Museum in Berlin

The Trabi Museum in Berlin

The “Trabi” was the most popular vehicle of the GDR. Popular because there was actually not much else available.

80 percent of GDR citizens drove a Trabant. More than three million cars were produced between 1958 and 1991 in Zwickau, Saxon. The Trabant is now part of East German culture and attracts visitors from all over the world. Since 2013, the Trabi Museum, located next to the Panorama Asisi and Checkpoint Charlie, is dedicated to this two-stroker and its history. The museum shows the different stages of development of the cult car, as well as its versatile uses. There are fifteen Trabis of different generations, colors and designs exhibited.
Among them are also special specimens such as military vehicles, jeeps and police cars, as well as rarities such as a Trabant with camping equipment, the fastest, as well as the oldest vehicle, the DKW from the 1930s. In a cinema you also have the opportunity to deepen your knowledge. In exciting short reports, the fans and engineers of the vehicle have their say. By the way, at the car rental company "Trabi World,” right next door, you can sit down behind the steering wheel of an actual Trabi yourself!
