The BMW International Open is an annual men's professional golf tournament on the European Tour. Founded in 1989, it was held in and around BMW's home city of Munich, Germany until 2012 when it moved to Cologne. From 1997 to 2011 and 2013 it was played at the Golfclub München Eichenried. In 2012 and 2014, the event moved to Golf Club Gut Lärchenhof.

The event is the only Tour event played in Germany. In 2013 the prize fund was 2 million, which is mid-range for a European Tour event.
