Extension of Special Exhibition »My Trabi«

The special exhibition »My Trabi - 26 Two-Stroke Stories« tells 26 exciting stories in small showcases about the Trabant 601, the most widely-driven car in the DDR.

The number 26 runs through the history of the Trabant 601. It had 26 horsepower, a 26-liter tank, and it was discontinued in 1990 after 26 years of production . The Trabant - German for »companion«, - actually accompanied the lives of many DDR citizens: first as a dream, then, after a waiting period of up to 16 years, as a new car, unless you bought a used car for a high surcharge. »The car was also a status symbol in socialism and promised a little freedom in a country without freedom. No other car is loaded with as many memories, and it is comparable at most to the VW Beetle in the Federal Republic, « says curator Sören Marotz.

The exhibition will be on display in the foyer of the DDR Museum until November 10, 2019. Admission to the temporary exhibition is free of charge.
