The German Masters is a professional ranking snooker tournament, which was first held in 1995. Mark Selby is the reigning champion.

History[edit]

The tournament started as the German Open and was a ranking tournament from 1995 to 1997. The event was held in Frankfurt, Osnabrück and Bingen am Rhein in its first three years. In 1998 the name of the tournament was changed to German Masters, and it became a non-ranking tournament. The event then was discontinued, but returned for the 2010/2011 season as a ranking tournament.[3] It is held at the Tempodrom in Berlin since the 2011 tournament.[4]
