Hugendubel is, along with Thalia, one of two major book retailers in Germany. It was founded in 1893 by Heinrich Karl Gustav Hugendubel in Munich.

History

Heinrich Karl Gustav Hugendubel bought an already existing bookshop at the Salvatorplatz in Munich in 1893, thereby laying the foundation for a German limited partnership, GmbH & Co. KG. The firm was left to his son, Heinrich Hugendubel, in 1916 and then his son, Paul Hugendubel, in 1934. After Paul's death in 1943, his wife Anneliese Hugendubel, assumed control, acting as managing chief until 1964 when their son, Heinrich Hugendubel, opened the first branch in Munich. Heinrich Hugendubel II, led the enterprise to his death in 2005 and incorporated acting partners Ekkehard Lux, Thomas Nitz, Torsten Brunn, Nina Hugendubel and Maximilian Hugendubel.
