berlin Trabant Tour
Chug your way round Berlin in a Trabi! A must for a Berlin stag do, a Trabant tour gives you the golden opportunity to get behind the wheel of a classic car from Communist times. Everyone had one of these dirty bangers in the Cold War. Famous for being utterly rubbish, they've now achieved cult car status. If this was a Top Gear challenge, it'd be called 'Stag in a Clapped-Out Car'. Spend an hour puttering your way round East or West Berlin, seeing all the top attractions from the windows of your little Trabi.
Ok, so here's how this works: it's up to four to a Trabant and one of you drives. The one who's driving will need to remember to bring his driving license on the day. Instructors will show you the controls. There's really not much to get to grips with! The Trabi has a two-stroke engine and has been famously described as a cross between a lawnmower and a cardboard box! If you want a real driving challenge for a Berlin stag do, a Trabant tour will put you through your paces.
Do the East Berlin Trabant tour and take in famous places like Karl Marx Allee, the East Side Gallery of the Berlin Wall, and possibly Siegessaule, the monument that was used to help pilots land planes in the Second World War. Go West and putter past the historic and modern places. You'll probably drive down the famous Ku-Damm, Berlin's biggest shopping area.
