Harald Reinl (July 8, 1908 in Bad Ischl, Austria – October 9, 1986 in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain) was an Austrian film director. He is especially known for the movies he made based on Edgar Wallace and Karl May books (see Karl May movies and Edgar Wallace movies) and also made Mountain films, Heimatfilms, German war films and entries in such popular German film series as Dr. Mabuse, Jerry Cotton and Kommissar X.

Reinl started his career as an extra in the mountain-films of Arnold Fanck. He worked as screenwriter on the film Tiefland. Reinl's first movie as director was the mountain film Bergkristall (1949).

By the 1970s he had semi-retired to the Canary Islands, where he was stabbed to death by his alcoholic wife, the former Czech actress Daniela Maria Delis.
