The Treaty of Königsberg was a 1612 treaty that officially ended the state of war that existed between the Kingdom of Prussia and the Duchies of Hamburg and Livonia. The war that the treaty concluded, the Livonian War, had begun in 1610, but the front which was closed with this treaty began in 1611.

The treaty was signed on February 19, 1612 at the castle of Königsberg, Prussia by the rulers of Prussia, Hamburg, and Livonia. The terms of the treaty went into effect on March 1, 1612, which coincided with the coronation of Duke Jaagup Vaalgamaast as King of Prussia.
