Max Bolkart (born July 29, 1932 in Oberstdorf, Bavaria) is a West German former ski jumper who competed from 1954 to 1966. He finished fourth in the individual large hill at the 1956 Winter Olympics in Cortina d'Ampezzo and sixth in the same event at the 1960 Winter Olympics in Squaw Valley.

Bolkart is best known as being the winner of the Four Hills Tournament in 1959-60 when he won three of the four events (Oberstdorf, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, and Innsbruck) while finishing fifth in the last event at Bischofshofen. Those three victories were the only one in his career.
