Sonja Morgenstern (born 22 January 1955 in Frankenberg, Saxony) is a German figure skater and figure skating coach.

Morgenstern was coached by Jutta Müller in Chemnitz and represented the SC Karl-Marx-Stadt club and East Germany (GDR). In 1966 she won the Spartakiade in figure skating. Two years later she participated in the Winter Olympics. Her biggest success was winning the bronze medal at the European Figure Skating Championships in 1972. In the same year, she placed sixth at the Winter Olympics. Her main East German rival was Christine Errath. In 1973 Morgenstern ended her figure skating career as a result of injuries. In the early 1980s she coached the 4-year-old Stefan Lindemann.

Having retired from figure skating, Morgenstern studied educational theory in Zwickau and became a teacher. She gave up teaching in 1981 due to the illness of her son Michael who needed special care for the first four years of his life. She later became a beautician.
