Your specialist for Mercedes-Benz classic cars


Our family-run business has been proudly restoring, repairing, maintaining and servicing classic Mercedes-Benz vehicles since 1976. Design and technology are our passion. We have known many of the vehicles since they first appeared on the market as new cars and have spent the past 45 years helping owners to maintain the desirability and increase the value of their classic Mercedes-Benz vehicles.

Our mission is to provide years of driving and ownership pleasure from a unique automotive design that aims for engineering perfection.

We have devoted many decades to achieving our vision. Thanks to our in-house upholstery shop and parts production facility, nothing is impossible – even if it’s no longer available through the usual channels. We supply anything from a perfectly overhauled carburettor to an authentic leather interior – all under one roof. Custom-made products are nothing unusual for us.

Our history from 1976 to date

How we became, what we are today.


Classic cars are not just collector’s items; they are also part of our heritage. From the time that our father-in-law Fritz Wallner set foot in his workshop in Kreillerstrasse in Munich in 1976, it has been our life’s work to preserve and pass this heritage on to future generations.

The company was very small back then and the workshop was located at the heart of a quiet residential area in Trudering. Today, Kreillerstrasse is one of the busiest streets in Munich.

Fritz Wallner was simply following his heart at the time. He took on a filling station with a workshop attached and turned it into a world-renowned specialist workshop for classic Mercedes-Benz vehicles that, 45 years later, remains a byword for perfection, experience and passion.

In 2016, his son-in-law Dipl. Ing. Rouven Genz took over the family business, bringing with him his experience of working for the largest German carmakers. In order to offer customers a full range of services, he decided to add a sales showroom for classic Mercedes vehicles. Today, the entire Wallner/Genz family works closely together, each family member an expert in their own field. Their knowledge is carefully passed on, preserved and adjusted to take account of new developments. Their passion for the automobile extends to their private lives and they frequently take part in rallies, runs and events in their own vehicles.

In 2022, WALLNER Classic reaches another milestone: The move to the WALLNERWERK. The new home of WALLNER Classic offers even more room in which to indulge their passion for the automobile. Workshop and manufactory find even more space to unfold, the visitor can experience via a shop window live what passion means. Here, in four underground parking halls, we provide a vehicle storage service of the highest standard for vehicles of all makes and model years – where owners can take their stored vehicles for a spin any time. In our showroom on two levels you will find a selection of exclusive vehicles of all makes and, of course, Mercedes-Benz classic cars.

Ein starkes Team, die Oldtimer Experten Fritz Wallner mit Schwiegersohn Rouven

The 190 SL has always impressed us greatly and no more so than today. We’ve known them since they first appeared on the roads in 1955. When the 190 SL Club was founded in Germany in 1989, Fritz Wallner became its technical advisor and he has maintained a close relationship with the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center in Fellbach over decades until the present day. WALLNER Classic is pleased to be able to contribute its technical expertise to the preservation of the marque’s cultural heritage. Customers, car enthusiasts and industry experts appreciate our inexhaustible know-how and the countless tips, hints and improvements that we continue to publish. We write a quarterly report, which is published in the 190 SL Revue.

In addition to the 190SL, other Mercedes-Benz classics are of course always welcome. As a family business, we feel a connection to all who share in our passion for these vehicles.

“We see ourselves as fellow-travellers who would like to help you on your way to owning and maintaining your dream car.” That is how Rouven Genz described the trust-based relationship between WALLNER Classic and their customers.

The scope of the relationship can vary at any time depending on the customer’s particular needs, whether it’s an inquiry for spare parts, a partial restoration, a complete restoration, a sale or purchase, a service or a repair.

Our company is registered with the Bavarian Chamber of Commerce and certified by the Motoring Guild of Upper Bavaria as a specialist workshop for historical vehicles. 

We look forward to seeing you and your treasured possession.
