The 2013 Nebelhorn Trophy was a senior international figure skating competition in the 2013–14 season, held on 26–28 September 2013 at the Eislaufzentrum Oberstdorf. Medals were awarded in men's and ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing. Nebelhorn was the last qualifying event for the 2014 Winter Olympics.



Nebelhorn is held annually in Oberstdorf, Germany and is named after the Nebelhorn, a nearby mountain. It is one of the first international senior competitions of the season. Skaters are entered by their respective national federations.

Though most Olympic spots were earned at the 2013 World Championships, 6 spots in each of men's and ladies' singles, 4 in pair skating, and 5 in ice dancing were available at Nebelhorn for countries which remained without a berth in a discipline. Skaters from previously qualified countries also competed but only for medals; Nebelhorn could not be used to earn additional spots if a country already had one in a discipline.

Russia's Tatiana Volosozhar / Maxim Trankov won the pairs' event after placing first in both programs, while Germany's Maylin Wende / Daniel Wende and Mari Vartmann / Aaron Van Cleave took silver and bronze respectively. Great Britain's Stacey Kemp / David King, Ukraine's Elizaveta Usmantseva / Roman Talan, Estonia's Natalja Zabijako / Alexandr Zaboev, and Israel's Andrea Davidovich / Evgeni Krasnopolski earned Olympic berths for their countries.

The ladies' event was won by Russia's Elena Radionova, with silver going to Japan's Miki Ando and bronze to the United States' Ashley Cain. The Olympic berths were earned by Brooklee Han for Australia, Elene Gedevanishvili for Georgia, Anne Line Gjersem for Norway, Kerstin Frank for Austria, Elizaveta Ukolova for the Czech Republic, and Isadora Williams for Brazil.

Japan's Nobunari Oda won the men's event for the third time, finishing over 30 points ahead of silver medalist Jason Brown of the United States and bronze medalist Jeremy Ten of Canada. Securing an Olympic spot for their country were Alexei Bychenko for Israel, Zoltán Kelemen for Romania, Michael Christian Martinez for the Philippines, Brendan Kerry for Australia, Yakov Godorozha for Ukraine, and Paul Bonifacio Parkinson for Italy.

Madison Hubbell / Zachary Donohue of the United States were the winners of the ice dancing event ahead of Russia's Ksenia Monko / Kirill Khaliavin and Canada's Alexandra Paul / Mitchell Islam. China's Huang Xintong / Zheng Xun, Turkey's Alisa Agafonova / Alper Uçar, Australia's Danielle O'Brien / Gregory Merriman, Japan's Cathy Reed / Chris Reed, and Spain's Sara Hurtado / Adrià Díaz earned Olympic spots for their countries.
