Bernd Kaiser (born 11 April 1951) is a German coxswain. He was the cox of the East German eight that became world champion in 1978.

The 1.68 m tall and 51 kg heavy Kaiser started for SC Dynamo Berlin and won his first GDR national championship with the eight in 1972; however, that year the Olympic team did not take part in the championship. Kaiser won his second GDR championship title in 1978.[1] For the 1978 World Rowing Championships on Lake Karapiro in New Zealand, an East German team was formed to which rowers from the winning and vice-champion boats of the GDR championships belonged. Matthias Schumann, Ulrich Karnatz, Gerd Sredzki, Andreas Ebert, Friedrich-Wilhelm Ulrich, Harald Jährling, Uwe Dühring, Bernd Höing and coxswain Kaiser were victorious in New Zealand, with West Germany and New Zealand winning the other medals.[2]

At the GDR championships in 1981 and 1982, Kaiser coxed the third-placed eight. In 1983 he won his third GDR championship title in this boat class.[1] Hendrik Reiher, however, replaced Kaiser at the 1983 World Rowing Championships.[3] In 1983 and 1984, Kaiser won two further national titles with the coxed four.[4]
