Christopher Berneck (born 10 July 1992) is a German figure skater. He has won four senior international medals and is the 2011 German senior national bronze medalist.


Berneck started skating in 1998 at the ice rink in Herrischried, Black Forest, Germany. He initially competed for the EHC Herrischried. In 1999, Berneck and his family moved to Garmisch-Partenkirchen where he trained with Wolfgang Danne and Harold Williams. He competed for the SC Riessersee. During his time in [Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Berneck competed in the European Criterium events and won the 2001–02 Cubs Boys overall category, winning all three events he competed in, including the Helmut Seibt Memorial, where U.S. skater Keegan Messing placed third in the same category.

In 2001, Berneck returned to his home town, Görwihl, and trained at the Stuttgart training center, competing for the TUS Eissport-Stuttgart, before moving to Berlin in 2003. He trained with Romy Oesterreich at the Sportforum Hohenschoenhausen until 2007, when the family moved to Wilmington, Delaware, United States. In June 2011, Berneck and his family moved to Barrie, Ontario, Canada and he now trains at the Mariposa International Training Center with Robert Tebby, Doug Leigh, Tugba Karademir, Steven Cousins, Lee Barkell and other coaches. In the 2011–12 season he suffered from celiac disease and was not able to compete for six months. In spring 2012, he had lyme disease which took him off the ice for three months.
