Adolf Stern (1849–1907) was a German chess master.

Born into a merchant Jewish family, he was the second child of Jacob Stern and Babette Caroline. At the beginning of his chess career, he participated in Baden-Baden 1870 chess tournament, playing only 4 games (scoring 1.5/4) because of Franco-Prussian War (as a Bavarian reservist, he fought in the war). In August 1871 he played in Wiesbaden (section I) scoring 3/4. In September 1871 he took 2nd, behind Samuel Mieses, in Bad Ems. In July/August 1878 he took 9th in Frankfurt (the 12th WDSB–Kongress, Louis Paulsen won).
