Paul Würtz (also Würz or Wirtz) (October 30, 1612 - March 23, 1676) was a German officer and diplomat, who at various times was in German, Swedish, Danish, and Dutch service.

He was born in Husum, Dithmarschen. He was a Swedish Pomeranian general major and commander of the Stettin fortress from 1657 to 1659. He successfully withstood a siege of Brandenburgian troops in 1659, in a counterattack captured their ammunition depot, and forced their withdrawal. From 1661 to 1664, he was vice governor of Swedish Pomerania.
