The 56th German football championship was the culmination of the football season in the Federal Republic of Germany in 1959-60. Hamburger SV were crowned champions for the third time after a group stage and a final, having previously won the title in 1923 and 1928. It was the clubs third appearance in the final in four years, having lost the 1957 and 1958 final.

On the strength of this title, the club participated in the 1960-61 European Cup, where HSV lost to FC Barcelona in the semi-finals.

Runners-up 1. FC Köln made its first appearance in the national title game.

The format used to determine the German champion was the same as the one used in the 1959 season. Nine clubs qualified for the tournament, with the runners-up of West and South having to play a qualification match. The remaining eight clubs then played a home-and-away round in two groups of four, with the two group winners entering the final.
