The 2019 German Darts Grand Prix was the third of thirteen PDC European Tour events on the 2019 PDC Pro Tour. The tournament took place at Zenith, Munich, Germany, from 20–22 April 2019. It featured a field of 48 players and £140,000 in prize money, with £25,000 going to the winner.

Michael van Gerwen was the defending champion after defeating Peter Wright 8–5 in the final of the 2018 tournament, and he defended his title by beating Simon Whitlock 8–3 in the final, which was his 30th European Tour title since its inception in 2012.

Qualification and format[edit]

The top 16 entrants from the PDC ProTour Order of Merit on 5 March will automatically qualify for the event and will be seeded in the second round.

The remaining 32 places will go to players from six qualifying events – 18 from the UK Tour Card Holder Qualifier (held on 15 March), six from the European Tour Card Holder Qualifier (held on 15 March), two from the West & South European Associate Member Qualifier (held on 19 April), four from the Host Nation Qualifier (held on 19 April), one from the Nordic & Baltic Qualifier (held on 6 October 2018) and one from the East European Associate Member Qualifier (held on 20 January).

From 2019, the Host Nation, Nordic & Baltic and East European Qualifiers will only be available to non-tour card holders. Any tour card holders from the applicable regions will have to play the main European Qualifier. The only exceptions being that the Nordic & Baltic qualifiers for the first 3 European Tour events took place in late 2018, before the new ruling was announced.

Gerwyn Price, who was set to be the 3rd seed, withdrew prior to the tournament draw. All seeds below him moved up a place, with Danny Noppert becoming sixteenth seed, and an extra place being made available in the Host Nation Qualifier.

The following players will take part in the tournament:
