The Fürstenberg-Rennen is a Group 3 flat horse race in Germany which is open to three-year-old thoroughbreds. It is run at Baden-Baden over a distance of 2,000 metres (about 1¼ miles), and it is scheduled to take place each year in late August or early September.

The event was established in 1880, and it was originally contested over 2,400 metres. For a period it was known as the Preis von Iffezheim. Its distance was modified several times during the first half of the 20th century, and it began a prolonged spell over 2,200 metres in 1957. The race was given Group 3 status in 1972. Its distance was cut to 2,000 metres in 2001.
