The 1940 German Ice Hockey Championship was the 24th season of the German Ice Hockey Championship, the national championship of Germany. 10 teams participated in the championship, and Wiener EG won the title.

The 1940 championship also served as the first German War Championship (Kriegsmeisterschaft). Teams short on players were allowed to combine forces as Kriegsspielgemeinschaften (KSG). BFC Preussen and Zehlendorfer Wespen combined squads this year.

Each Gau could enter one team, however, the federation reserved the right to use its judgement and select other teams from stronger Gaus, if others did not have any teams sign up. Gau II/III, IX-XIII, XVI and XVII each had two teams enter. The maximum number of teams in the championship was 10. There were no teams from the Gaus IV, V/VI, VII/VIII, and XIV/XV.

There were also new "sports area communities" (Sportbereichsgemeinschaft) formed on January 1, 1940. Sportbereich XIX (Danzig-West Prussia) was created in the former Free State of Danzig and its surrounding areas. In Western Poland, the Sportbereich Wartheland was formed and in Eastern Poland the Sportbereich Generalgouvernement was created. These areas did not enter teams in the national championship/
