Carl Georg Enslen (20 September 1792 – 17 April 1866) was an Austrian painter.

Enslen was born at Vienna in 1792, and studied at the Academy of Berlin. He travelled in Italy, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark, and his panoramas give proof of a knowledge of excellent linear and aerial perspective. He died at Lille, aged 73. There is a view of the Bay of Naples by him in water-colours in the Lille Museum.

He was the son of Johann Carl Enslen, both worked closely together.
