Wyn Hoop (born Winfried Lüssenhop) is a former German singer who began his career in the early 1950s when he formed a jazz band called the Capitellos, who toured and worked on radio before disbanding in 1958. As a soloist, he first performed under the name Fred Lyssen before adopting the professional name Wyn Hoop.

He represented his home country in the 1960 Contest in London with the song Bonne nuit ma chérie, which finished in joint fourth place.

Hoop recorded several successful German cover versions of English-language hits (such as "Are You Lonesome Tonight?") before joining forces in 1962 with Finnish singer Pirkko Mannola, with whom he recorded a number of popular tracks. From 1964, Hoop began recording with Austrian singer Andrea Horn, who he had married in 1961. In 1978, they retired from showbusiness.
