The XXXII Corps (German: XXXII. Armeekorps) was a corps-level command of the German Army in the last 2 months of the World War II.

It was created on 26 March 1945, from the troops in Military Region (Wehrkreis) II in Stettin. The staff came from the Stellvertretendes Generalkommando II. Armeekorps based at Stettin. The Corps was engaged, as part of the 3rd Panzer Army in Army Group Vistula, against the Soviet Army which was at that time already at the gates of the city. The battle ended in defeat and the Soviet Red Army captured Stettin on 26 April 1945. The Corps fled to the west with the rest of the 3rd Panzer Army, and surrendered to the British.
