The 1970 German Grand Prix was a Formula One race held at Hockenheimring on 2 August 1970. It was the eighth race of the 1970 Formula One season.

On short notice following the drivers' demand for improved safety at the Nürburgring, the race was moved to Hockenheim for the first time in the history of the German Grand Prix as this track already had been fitted with Armco. F1 returned to an updated Nürburgring in 1971.
