Trabis on parade

The Trabi was possibly one of the worst cars ever built! It was the “people’s car” of East Germany before the reunification of Germany in 1990 – designed to be cheap to build and own. It was small, under-powered (a two-stroke engine) and far from reliable.

However, its very awfulness gave the Trabi a large fanbase, especially after reunification. People have learned to love their Trabi, and in Berlin today you can go on a tour round the city centre in a Trabi parade.

As the parade goes by you can see the passengers desperately trying to keep their door closed and not breathe too deeply if the window is open – the fumes that this little monster gives off are truly appalling!
