Bustling: The Berlin Wall was built by East Germany in 1961, and the top image shows the wall around the Brandenburg Gate on Nov 19, 1961. Today the same area is filled with cars, buses and people moving freely around the German capital.
A Trabbant in an alley: a classic scene from the 90s. Pollution regulation now means the few Trabbies are seen on Hungary`s streets. This tiny East German car, made from resin and cardboard, is now a collector`s item.
The Trabant is a car that was produced by former East German Auto Maker VEB Sachsenring Automobilwerke Zwickau in Zwickau, Sachsen. It was the most common vehicle in East Germany. Find the link to download a free paper model of this cult car at Papermau!
