The Hindenburg Cup (German: Hindenburg-Pokal) was a German aviation prize, founded in 1928 and awarded annually by President and Field Marshal Paul von Hindenburg to recognize achievements in powered flight. From 1930 an additional prize was also awarded for gliding.

Winners[edit]

After the death of Hindenburg in 1934 the Hindenburg Cup was renamed the Adolf Hitler Prize (Adolf-Hitler-Preis).
