The Norwegian striker has now scored 10 goals this season in the Bundesliga – one fewer than Robert Lewandowski.
The win moves Dortmund up to second in the table; one point behind Bayern Munich who drew to Werder Bremen.
Hertha Berlin went ahead in the 33rd minute through Matheus Cunha with an unstoppable shot from distance.
Haaland tapped home in the 47th minute to equalise and score his first away league of the season. He then scored two minutes later when he beat the offside trap and hammered his shot past Alexander Schwolow.
He grabbed his hat–trick in the 62nd minute, taking advantage of a poor back-pass and then rounding the keeper and slotting the ball into the goal.
Raphael Guerreiro scored the fourth in the 70th minute when he poked the ball into the net whilst on the ground.
Matheus Cunha scored his sixth Bundesliga goal of the season from the penalty spot in the 79th minute to cut the deficit, but in the same minute Haaland scored one more – powering past a couple of defenders and then running through on goal after a pass by Jude Bellingham.
He made no mistake to complete the rout for Lucien Favre’s side.
Haaland has now scored 23 goals in his first 22 Bundesliga appearances – a new record after breaking Uwe Seeler’s record of scoring 20 in his first 22 league matches.
