Full Tour Description

Duration: 3-4 hours (app. 1 hour enclosed racing + 2-3 hours sightseeing)

Our Classic Trabant Tour is personalized to keep things interesting. Due to our experience with our guests' wishes, we offer you two options.

After picking you up at your accommodation, we'll take you to an enclosed area to complete an obstacle course to help you get acquainted with the legendary Trabant. You'll quickly find out how easy it is to master the gearshift and the clutch of this magnificent vehicle, and we'll teach you how to shift and drive without engine break. By request, we can also meet you near the race course. Just let us know.

After getting warmed up, you'll have the chance to have a go driving the Trabant around the city. The staff of Rent-a-Trabant Budapest will tag along, providing maintenance if needed and, of course, tour guiding at the various stops along the way.

During the tour, we'll check out some of the major sights of Budapest. At Heroes' Square where you'll get a great summary of Hungarian history. This is what the square was built for: to sum up the past of the country from the conquest of this land to the 1000th anniversary of the existence of Hungary with a breath-taking eclectic architectural narration.

After this stop, we get back to our cars and drive around the green area behind Heroes' Square - the City Park. Then we make our way towards the Citadel along the longest road in Budapest, Andrássy Avenue.

Approaching the highest downtown viewpoint we cross the first stable bridge built to ally the two sides of Budapest, the Chain Bridge. We drive through the Tunnel and after a short but challenging uphill drive, we'll arrive at Gellért Hill.

Here your guide will tell you more about the city's history and put the past and present into context. You'll be told funny and interpretive stories about the surroundings and the famous lady on top of the hill, the Hungarian Liberty Statue. On our way back to the center we cross Elisabeth Bridge. The tour then ends wherever is convenient for you.

And if you're not keen to drive the Trabant in the city, our guide and chauffeurs will take the wheel instead. Don't worry, you can change your mind and switch at any time, though!
