Bunte is a German weekly magazine; coverage includes celebrity, gossip, news and lifestyle matters. It is published by Bunte Entertainment Verlag GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hubert Burda Media.

The magazine began publication, edited by Franz Burda, as Das Ufer. In 1954 it became an illustrated magazine and was renamed Bunte Illustrierte. The modern format, Burda is quoted as saying, was inspired by Andy Warhol. The present editor is Patricia Riekel.
