The BMW Open is a tennis tournament held in Munich, Germany. Held since 1900, the tournament is played on outdoor clay courtsand is a part of the ATP Tour schedule.

In 1900, the first edition of the tournament was held by the tennis club Münchner Tennis- und Turnierclub (MTTC) Iphitos, which was the first tennis club in Munich having been formed in 1892 by students. The club only had grass courts, and the first edition was therefore played on grass.

The Center Court of the MTTC has been in Aumeisterweg since 1930, and holds 5,600 people.

The tournament has offered prize money since 1970, when the total prizes amounted to $20,000.
