Auto Herbst GmbH was part of the Herbst group, founded by Walter Herbst in 1948. Beginning as a vehicle trader Walter Herbst opened a business for car accessories on Bülowstrasse near Nollendorfplatz where he became the biggest auto battery trader in Berlin.
In the mid-1980s Herbst Group was taken over by Walter’s daughter Dagmar Herbst. Dagmar added a wholesale and retail location making Herbst the largest car-parts dealer in Northern Germany.
In 1990 Dagmar Herbst opened today's workshop in Gendarmenmarkt’s newly built Hilton hotel, equipped with its own car wash and multi-story car park.
Today our main office and workshop still remains at the Hilton where we provide the highest quality workmanship and most convenient location in Berlin to our service-oriented clientele.
