Classic Remise is the name of a business model (service centers around the topics motorcycle and automobile with specialization in the field of classic, vintage and collectible vehicles). There are two Classic Remises in Berlin and Düsseldorf. Both service centers are located in listed buildings with an industrial-traffic background.

The Classic Remise Berlin is located in the Wiebestraße in the district Moabit in a former tram depot. Planning began in 2000 and the opening took place in 2003. The total area of the Classic Remise Berlin is approximately 12,000 m². In the Classic Remise there are 88 setting boxes for private automobile rarities. There are also 30 commercial tenants, such as classic car repairers, retailers, service providers and two restaurants, as well as meeting and event space, which can be booked for events.

The building, the so-called Wiebehallen, was built from 1899 to 1901 and used under the name Moabit Depot as tram depot. In the past, this depot, with more than 10,000 m², was the largest tram depot in Europe. After the depot closed in 1964 and the tram operation in West Berlin was completely discontinued in 1967, the halls fell into disrepair since the end of the 1960s. Later, the halls were even closed because of collapse danger. Between 2002 and 2003, the rectangular building was completely restored. Historical writings, damage from the Second World War or parts of tram rails remind of the past of the building. The completed building has won several awards, including the 2004 Berlin Monument Preservation Prize, the Ferdinand von Quast Medal.

The Classic Remise Düsseldorf is located in Harffstraße in the district of Oberbilk. It was opened on 16 September 2006 in a former railway roundhouse. The total area is more than 19,000 m². In the Classic Remise Düsseldorf there are 80 glass adjustment boxes and 35 specialized service providers – including dealers, restorers, workshops, clothing and automobilia stores as well as a restaurant, a bistro and a summer beer garden. The offer is completed by service providers such as vehicle care providers, saddlers, experts and motorcycle specialists. The site has a large event hall and smaller event space for the booking by companies for presentations, meetings and sales meetings. Rallyes take place at the location, and sightseeing tours or classic car-related major events start here. Since 2017, the Barber Convention is held here.

The Classic Remise Düsseldorf is located in a railway roundhouse, which was built between 1929 and 1931. The building has a semicircle as a base. The diameter of the engine shed is almost 150 m, making it one of the largest preserved engine sheds of this type in Europe. On the site of the former railway turntable, a restaurant was built over two floors, the space between the restaurant and the old building was covered with a modern transparent foil construction.
