The Hansa-Preis is a Group 2 flat horse race in Germany which is open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It is run at Horner Rennbahn, Hamburg, over a distance of 2,400 metres (about 1½ miles), and it is scheduled to take place each year in late June.

The event was established in 1892, and it was originally called the Grosser Hansa-Preis. It was temporarily known as the Jubiläums-Preis (the "Anniversary Prize") in both 1902 and 1927. It was held at Dresden in 1944, but aside from cancellations it has otherwise continually taken place at Hamburg. For much of its history the race was contested over 2,200 metres. It was classed at Group 2 level in 1972, and its distance was extended to 2,400 metres in 2008.
