Automotive experience since 1972

A classic car is not only an elegant means of transportation. Each journey also represents a trip back in time, allowing you to experience a bygone era. On one hand, owning, driving and maintaining a classic car gives you an unrivalled sense of pleasure and satisfaction; on the other hand, classic cars have now become sustainable, tax-free investments with a high return potential in many cases.

Since its foundation in 1972, the company Thiesen has developed into one of the leading trading houses for high-quality classic cars worldwide and has traded some of the rarest and most significant automobiles of each motoring era.

Our premises, situated in a former wool factory, provides a delightful historic setting in which to showcase the finest automotive rarities. At any time, around 50 selected classics are displayed within this unique backdrop. In our in-house photo studio our photographer will set the perfect scene for your classic car to assure optimum marketing.

Thiesen Berlin

Classic Remise in Berlin

Since 2003, we have also operated a franchise in Berlin, within the Classic Remise. Here, the unique atmosphere and exceptional presentation of historic vehicles guarantee memorable moments for all classic car enthusiasts. The lovingly restored Wilhelminian streetcar depot also houses parking spaces, workshops and service facilities for classic vehicles, providers of spare parts, accessories, appraisers and TÜV.

Office Cologne

Thiesen Showroom in the Curbs Club Cologne

In order to create more proximity to our customers and interested parties from North Rhine-Westphalia and the Benelux region, a small, exclusive Thiesen showroom has been established in the “Curbs Club Cologne” in the south of Cologne in summer 2020. In a discreet atmosphere, the showroom offers what makes the heart of lovers of classic cars beat faster.
On site you will be looked after by Dirk Petersmann, a competent partner with decades of experience with historic vehicles. After many years of successful activity in the trade with classic cars, Dirk Petersmann was one of the initiators of the “Meilenwerk” (today “Classic Remise”) in Düsseldorf.
