The Grosser Preis von Baden is a Group 1 flat horse race in Germany which is open to thoroughbreds aged three years or older. It is run at Baden-Baden over a distance of 2,400 metres (about 1½ miles), and it is scheduled to take place each year in early September.

The event was established in 1858, and it was originally contested over 3,200 metres. It was founded by Edouard Bénazet (1801–1867), a French businessman who was the manager of the Casino Baden-Baden. The inaugural running was part of a three-day festival to mark the opening of Iffezheim Racecourse.

The race's distance was cut to 2,800 metres in 1887. It was known as the Jubiläums-Preis from 1893 to 1895, and its length was shortened to 2,200 metres in 1894. The present distance, 2,400 metres, was set in 1898.
