George II of Hesse-Darmstadt (German: Georg II von Hessen-Darmstadt; March 1605 in Darmstadt-11 June 1661) was the Landgrave of Hesse-Darmstadt from 1626 - 1661. He was the son of Ludwig V and Magdalena von Brandenburg.

He married Sophia Eleonore of Saxony on April 1, 1627. From 1645 to 1648 he led the so-called Hessenkrieg against the Landgravine Amalie Elizabeth of Hesse-Cassel over the inheritance of the extinct line of Hesse-Marburg. This conflict resulted in the loss of Hesse-Marburg to Hesse-Cassel.
