The 30-year-old Cufre, who has also had stints at Gimnasia La Plata, Roma and Siena, has signed a short-term deal until the end of the season.
Hertha general manager Dieter Hoeness said: "We are glad that with Leandro Cufre we have an experienced player who can operate on the right or left of defence."
