Eva-Maria Wernicke (born 30 September 1953 in Beierfeld) is an East German luger who competed during the 1970s and early 1980s. She won the bronze medal in the women's singles event at the 1973 FIL World Luge Championships in Oberhof, East Germany.

Wernicke also won two medals in the women's singles event at the FIL European Luge Championships with a silver in 1975 and a bronze in 1973.
