Description:
Germany was represented at the 1956 Winter Olympics in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy by a United Team of Germany of athletes from the (Federal Republic of Germany (FRG), West Germany) and, for the first time, also from the (German Democratic Republic (GDR), East Germany) which had not joined in 1952.

The results were rather disappointing as only 2 medals were scored against emerging competition. Rosa "Ossi" Reichert won Gold at the women's giant slalom, and Harry GlaƟ took Bronze in the K90 individual jump.
