Trabi Paradies am Nationalpark Hainich Weberstedt Reviews
Paradise by the dashboard light Jul 10, 2012
But not in the Trabi, because they don't have dashboard light :)
The Trabant (called Trabi, a loving nickname) was built in the DDR. It was a family car wit a 2 cylinder 2 stroke engine.
Nobody outside the DDR wanted to drive them, but I have seen some in Holland. The people I know that drove one were hard core believers in (DDR) socialism. (of topic: now they are driving a VW Golf)
The export cars had features you were deprived from in the DDR. (like a speed-o-meter -as I was told)
This you will not find in this museum, but..
...you will find the original Trabants and specially rebuilt and tuned cars you cannot find anywhere else but in Germany.
When we were there, there was another special exhibition on mopeds built in the DDR, a special treat for a guy like me.
I think 2.50E pp (3.50E pp when they have a special exhibition) is cheap for a car lover and his wife.
Don't forget to buy a mini Trabi in the shop (maybe you can buy a few more, then build and tune your own special car).
Non-car lovers can better spend their money in a cafe of choice :)
