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 4 some of the finest examples in the US will chug their way to the International Spy Museum to celebrate our Eleventh 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. Try your hand at graffiti Berlin-style, DC TOOOL lock-picking sessions, and enjoy delicious hot dogs from Swizzler, while the Alte Kameraden German Band plays on!
*This event is free and open to the public.
