The 2019 Austrian Darts Open was the fifth of thirteen PDC European Tour events on the 2019 PDC Pro Tour. The tournament took place at Steiermarkhalle, Premstätten, Austria, from 3–5 May 2019. It featured a field of 48 players and £140,000 in prize money, with £25,000 going to the winner.

Jonny Clayton was the defending champion after defeating Gerwyn Price 8–5 in the final of the 2018 tournament, but he was defeated 6–2 in the second round by Tytus Kanik.

Michael van Gerwen won his third Austrian Darts Open title (and his 32nd in total on the European Tour) with an 8–7 win over Ian White in the final.
