The 1952–53 DDR-Oberliga was the fourth season of the DDR-Oberliga, the first tier of league football in East Germany.

The league was contested by seventeen teams, two less than in the previous season, and Dynamo Dresden won the championship after winning a necessary decider against Wismut Aue 3–2 after extra time. It was the first of eight national championships for Dynamo but it would have to wait until 1970–71 to win its second one.[3][4]

Harry Arlt of BSG Rotation Dresden was the league's top scorer with 26 goals.[5]

Two clubs were renamed during the season, both in April 1953. Volkspolizei Dresden became Dynamo Dresden and Motor Gera was renamed to Wismut Gera. On 12 April 1953 Vorwärts Leipzig was relocated to the East Berlin and became Vorwärts Berlin. Before the season Union Oberschöneweide had been renamed to Motor Oberschöneweide, with both clubs relegated at the end of season, leaving East German capital without an Oberliga club for the following season.[6]

The 1952–53 season saw two of the most successful clubs in the East German championship adopt the name and location they would later be most successful under, police club Dynamo Dresden with eight and army club Vorwärts Berlin with six titles, second and third only to Dynamo Berlin.[4]
