Berlin Trabi Safari – an exciting orienteering trip

First choose your dream Trabi. After a short briefing concerning the “secrets” of the “four-gear manual change” you can start: pull the choke, start the car,  shift to low gear, let off the break, push the gas pedal – off you go! As soon as you pass the first bend, everybody is into Trabi-fever. With 26 horsepower and at 30 km/h you chug along the streets in your Trabi convoy. The guide sits in the lead car and tells you interesting and curious things about yesterday and today throughout the whole trip. You hear the guide via radio in every Trabi, not without headphones, just over the loudspeakers. On your trip you will get to know the city from a totally different point of view. After graduating from your adventure and having gained new knowledge about how to drive a Trabi, every first time driver of the Trabi gets his/her own “Trabi-driving licence”. You have the possibility to choose between two dates.
