The DSBV was founded in 1957 under the umbrella of the larger Deutscher Turn- und Sportbund. It succeeded an earlier organization, founded in Oberhof in 1953. One of the smallest sports governing bodies in the GDR, the Deutscher Schlitten- und Bobsportverband had 3,759 athletes and 447 trainers in 1988.

Upon German reunification in 1990, the DSBV was absorbed into the German Bobsleigh and Sled Sport Association.
