Otto II (died 8 November 1111) was a Graf (Count) of Habsburg and one of the founding members of the Habsburg family. He was the son of Werner I, Count of Habsburg.

In 1108, Otto accompanied Kaiser Heinrich V on a campaign against Hungary. On his return, in 1111, he was murdered. Otto was probably the first person to adopt the title Graf von Habsburg.

He married Hilla, countess von Pfirt[1] (died c. 1076), with whom he had two children, Werner II and Adelheid.
