Once upon a time (some 30 years ago), you had to wait up to 18 years for such a car – usually, the East-Germans ordered one after having given birth to a child. The Trabant was the only affordable car in East-Germany and was a super robust vehicle, which still runs today to thousands.

Impressive!

The good old times

The other day, I was driving with my girlfriend through Berlin Köpenick. Suddenly, this old tram crossed my way and I was able to capture this cool shot. I used such a tram myself back in the day when I was a kid.

Most people tend to think, that these trams were built in the 50s and 60s, but actually their origin is far older – the base is actually from the 1920s. These trams were built since the East-Berlin public transportation authority was not able to buy enough new trams back then.

So, everytime I see one of these, I actually see something originally built nearly hundred years ago.

Image Gallery: Deutsches Technikmuseum October 2017

Last week, my family and I visited the Deutsche Technikmuseum in Berlin, a very interesting place. Here you can virtually stroll through history, you can experience trains, planes, cars, ships as well as photography or jewellery.

I uploaded many images into a gallery. Some of these pictures were already featured in my blog or my instagram account, most of them are not and perhaps won’t ever be.

You can find the gallery here.

So, happy exploring – and leave me a comment!
