  • Leipzig: Individual Trabi Tour with Guide

    3. Leipzig: Individual Trabi Tour with Guide

    Experience a piece of pure nostalgia and discover Leipzig's inner city behind the wheel of a Trabi. Let a professional and entertaining guide lead the way and tell you interesting stories. The tour follows a path past the Monument to the Battle of the Nations, the old fairgrounds, into the southern part of the city, to the Gohliser Schlösschen and the Sportforum. See the city's most beautiful and important sights. The tour can be tailored to your individual interests. Sit at the wheel of a genuine Trabi, one of the most famous symbols of the DDR, and drive down the beautiful and storied streets of Leipzig.

    We enjoyed driving through the city and getting to know places and corners of the city with significance background. Driving the car for the first time needs a lot of concentration, so the one driving couldn’t focus much on the tour rather just following instructions on directions and the driving itself. So the tour information would be more for the passengers. But enjoying the drive of course for the driver. The organizers where very friendly and everything from getting the car and delivering it went very smooth.

Jörg was superb!

We enjoyed our tour and time so much we were sad to leave Leipzig the next day and wished Jörg could come with us! He was excellent and so engaged with our interests. We would recommend him highly!

Great culinary tour with a very committed, competent and amusing native-born woman who made time fly by. We liked the specialties served and we would do this tour again at any time.
