This is a list of German people who have reached the age of 110. Currently, there have been 53 validated supercentenarians to live in Germany. Furthermore, there are also supercentenarians that were born in Germany but spent their lives in foreign countries.

The oldest person ever from Germany is Augusta Holtz, who died in the USA aged 115 years, 79 days in 1986. The oldest person to have died in Germany may have been Gustav Gerneth (1905?-2019) who claimed to have been 114 years old at the time of his death, while Mathilde Mange (1906?-2019) claimed to have been the oldest woman ever to be born and reside in Germany (however, both are not validated as of the present day, so Maria Laqua (1889-2002) is still the oldest validated person to have died in Germany).

As of 19 October 2020, there are 10 living supercentenarians in Germany, the oldest of whom is an anonymous woman, aged 111. The oldest living emigrant German is Maria Aulenbacher, aged 110 years, 346 days.
