"Bonne nuit ma chérie" ("Good Night My Darling") was the German entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1960, performed in German (with the exception of the French of the title) by Wyn Hoop.

The song was performed eleventh on the night, following the Netherlands' Rudi Carrell with "Wat een geluk" and preceding Italy's Renato Rascel with "Romantica". At the close of voting, it had received 11 points, placing 4th in a field of 13.

The song is effectively a lullaby, with Hoop promising his lover that "my love will accompany you everywhere" and that "I'll never forget you" as she goes to sleep.

It was succeeded as German representative at the 1961 Contest by Lale Andersen with "Einmal sehen wir uns wieder".
