The 1943–44 Gauliga Donau-Alpenland was the sixth season of the Gauliga Donau-Alpenland, formerly the Gauliga Ostmark, the first tier of football in German-annexed Austria from 1938 to 1945.[1]

First Vienna FC won the championship and qualified for the 1944 German football championship, reaching the quarter-finals where it lost 3–2 to eventual winners Dresdner SC.[2][3]

The Gauliga Ostmark and Gauliga Donau-Alpenland titles from 1938 to 1944, excluding the 1944–45 season which was not completed, are recognised as official Austrian football championships by the Austrian Bundesliga.[4]
