The Minister-President of Hesse (German: Ministerpräsident des Landes Hessen), also referred to as the Premier or Minister President (also translated into English as the Prime minister of Hessen[1]), is the head of government of the German state of Hesse. The position in its current form was created in 1946, when the provisional state of Greater Hesse was renamed. Greater Hesse had been formed in 1945 after the Second World War from the Prussian Provinces of Kurhessen and Nassau (formed from the Prussian Province of Hesse-Nassau in 1944) and the People's State of Hesse. The current Minister-President is Volker Bouffier, heading a coalition government between the Christian Democrats and the Greens. Bouffier succeeded Roland Koch following his departure from active politics.

The office of the Minister-President is known as the State Chancellery (German: Hessische Staatskanzlei), and is located in the capital of Wiesbaden, along with the rest of the cabinet departments.

The state of Hesse sees itself in the tradition notably of the Grand Duchy of Hesse and the People's State of Hesse (colloquially known as "Hesse-Darmstadt"), having adopted many of its symbols.
