Map of the five German Oberligas 1945 to 1963

The 1961–62 Oberliga was the seventeenth season of the Oberliga, the first tier of the football league system in West Germany. The league operated in five regional divisions, Berlin, North, South, Southwest and West. The five league champions and the runners-up from the west, south, southwest and north then entered the 1962 German football championship which was won by 1. FC Köln. It was 1. FC Köln's first-ever national championship.[2]

Hamburger SV equaled the Oberliga start record set in 1952–53 by 1. FC Köln and repeated by Hannover 96 the season after, winning its first eleven games, a mark never surpassed.[3]

A similar league, the DDR-Oberliga, existed in East Germany, set at the first tier of the East German football league system. The 1961–62 DDR-Oberliga was won by ASK Vorwärts Berlin.[4]
