The Miracle of Bern (German title: Das Wunder von Bern) is a 2003 film by Snke Wortmann, which tells the story of a German family (particularly of a young boy and his depressed ex-POW father) and the unexpected West German miracle victory in the 1954 World Cup Final in Bern, Switzerland.

The film can be regarded as a portrait of post-war Germany. With over 6,000,000 cinema visitors, it is one of Germany's best-selling films. Among those attending the premiere were: Chancellor Gerhard Schrder, Peer Steinbrck, Minister-President of North Rhine-Westphalia, and Otto Schily, Federal Minister of the Interior.
