Budapest Trabant Tour


£81 per person: countryside (with lunch)

£49 per person: in the city (2 hours)

Designed in the fifties, made from lightweight Duroplast – resin reinforced with cotton or wool – and fitted with an unpretentious two-stroke engine, the Trabant is a true icon of Eastern European engineering. Learn to operate the gear stick built into the dashboard and take a scenic cruise to the hills, where a typically hearty Hungarian meal awaits. Then race back to Budapest at low speed for a high-octane night out.

What’s included?:

  • A local rep to meet you at your accommodation
  • Two people per Trabant (in odd numbered groups, one car may have two passengers)
  • 50 kilometre (31 mile) round trip through the Pilis Hills
  • Traditional Hungarian meal in a countryside restaurant, including water and soft drinks
  • Experienced English-speaking instructors
  • Short lesson on how to drive a Trabant, safety instructions
  • Support car in case of breakdowns (don’t worry, Trabants are easily repaired)

The small print:

  • Minimum groups of 8
  • Allow minimum half a day for this event
  • Ridiculously low speeds – Trabants were not designed for racing
  • Driving licenses required on the day
  • Please provide the following information for each participant latest one week before arrival:
    – Name
    – Birthplace and date
    – Citizenship
    – Address
    – Passport number
  • If the information is not provided, then you will not be allowed to drive but can still participate as passengers, for the same price.
  • The Trabant supplier brings the Trabants as close to your accommodation as possible. So they will be parked and waiting within walking distance unless otherwise specified. In this case, your guide will help arrange taxis and you pay directly.
  • Trabants do break down a lot, but as we mentioned above, the support team will get them fixed and back on the road in no time
  • Please let us know if there are any vegetarians in the group ahead of time
  • This is definitely a good weather activity, not really recommended in rain or snow
