Symbol of the former GDR, the Trabant was once the only model authorised in East Germany. Although the small car has had to learn how to cohabit with more roomy and modern competitors in unified Germany, it now rides high in the streets of Berlin more than ever. An iconic car, it costs an arm and a leg to rent for an excursion that takes visitors on a kind of cultural, photographic safari where the monuments are the major attraction. Although the experience is definitely worth it, it does come at a price: about £75 per person if you're travelling as a couple, and £66 if you're in a party of 4.
