The ONLY Trabant Rally in the United States!
It’s been more than 25 years since the Berlin Wall fell, but one Cold War icon is still chugging away—the Trabant. Despite their questionable performance and smoky two-stroke engines, these little cars are now affectionately regarded as a symbol of East Germany and the fall of Communism. Trabants are a rarity here, but on November 7 some of the finest examples in the US will chug their way to the International Spy Museum to celebrate our Ninth Annual Parade of Trabants.
Drop in to view the vintage cars, which will be parked in front of the Museum on F Street, NW, and enter a raffle to win a ride in a Trabant. You can even be part of our bid to set the World’s Record for stuffing people into a Trabant P601 Combi! While the cars are on display, experts will be on hand to answer questions about Trabants, the Cold War, and Communism, while the Alte Kameraden German Band provides festive music. Try your hand at graffiti Berlin-style and try to get past our own Checkpoint Charlie.
