  • 1903

    The story begins

    Since 1903, Sanct Bernhard has stood for high-quality, effective natural remedies and personal care products from our own production. Just like almost all companies, the history of Kräuterhaus Sanct Bernhard also starts small. Already in the first half of the 20th century, the herbal teas were packaged and distributed under the 1903 registered trademark Sanct Bernhard in Düsseldorf.

    Historical postcard

    Just as Bad Ditzenbach has changed and grown over the years in the Swabian Alb, Kräuterhaus Sanct Bernhard has also evolved over the years.
    Here is a postcard from the year 1921, already in colour.

    Hägenmark production

    In the 1960s, the Schulz family, which had long been known for its rosehip and juniper specialties, took over the sale of Sanct Bernhard herbal teas. Since then, the company has steadily expanded its product range to a total of over 600 different natural remedies, herbal and fruit teas and personal care products.

    Bad Ditzenbach in the 1960s

    Bad Ditzenbach has changed a lot since then. The current company premises is located at around the left edge of the photo. The railway track Geislingen-Wiesensteig, which runs across the picture and was dismantled in the late 1960s, can also be clearly seen. Nowadays there is a cycle path along the former tracks from Bad Überkingen to Wiesensteig.

    Relocation to new premises

    The company grew further in the 1990s and initially moved into the premises of the current Vitalhotel. Another relocation to a neighbouring building took place several years later.

    New production building

    After two and a half years of construction, the new production building has been completed and occupied. Since March 2020, the upper floor of the building has housed the oil capsule production with two production lines for the manufacture of up to 130,000 capsules per hour. A third production machine is already in preparation. Soon, plastic containers will also be produced in the new production building. Large compression machines are ready for this production on the ground floor. Other technical equipment, such as the air-conditioning system, also requires a lot of space and is located on the ground floor.
