OUR LOCATIONS.

LOCATION WÜRZBURG

The branch in Wilhelm-Wien-Straße forms the heart of the Feierabend GmbH. Established in 1975 by Helmut Feierabend, the location is still the focus of our daily work after a few expansions over the years. What was once in a Würzburg backyard workshop started with the restoration of a battered Fiat Ballila in 1962 by Helmut Feierabend, and with the new premises on Wilhelm-Wien-Straße it developed into a top address for classic car enthusiasts, far beyond the borders of Würzburg and Germany.

LOCATION SUHL

In the branch in Suhl we maintain a mechanical workshop in which we manufacture all conceivable spare parts and components individually at the customer’s request with both modern and historic machines.

This branch is also there historically associated with the BMW brand in a very special way. Because here, under Paul Greifzu from Suhl, a private racing driver who was extremely successful with the BWM 328, spare parts and components were manufactured for the then BMW plant in Eisenach. In the course of German reunification, Helmut Feierabend managed to continue this historical treasury. And so replacement parts and components for historic BMW automobiles are still made here today using the same machines as in pre-war times.
