Teams

A total of 18 teams will participate in this edition of the Bundesliga. VfB Stuttgart and Hannover 96 were relegated to 2016–17 2. Bundesliga. Former Bundesliga champion Stuttgart were relegated to the second level, whereas Hannover 96 finished a 14-year stint in the top level. They were replaced with SC Freiburg, 2. Bundesliga champion and RB Leipzig, 2. Bundesliga runner-up. Freiburg immediately returned to the Bundesliga, whereas RB Leipzig will make its debut. Finally Eintracht Frankfurt, 16th of Bundesliga faced Nürnberg, third of 2. Bundesliga in a Bundesliga play-off. Eintracht won 2–1 on aggregate and remained in the top level.

RB Leipzig will be the first team from the former East Germany to play in the Bundesliga since the relegation of Energie Cottbus after the 2008–09 season.

Relegation to 2. Bundesliga

This table lists the positions of teams after each week of matches. In order to preserve the chronological evolution, any postponed matches are not included to the round at which they were originally scheduled, but added to the full round they were played immediately afterwards. For example, if a match is scheduled for matchday 13, but then postponed and played between days 16 and 17, it will be added to the standings for day 16.

If a Bundesliga club wins the DFB-Pokal, they will qualify for the UEFA Europa League group stage, unless they have already qualified for the UEFA Champions League through league position. In this case, an additional UEFA Europa League group stage berth will be given to 6th, and the UEFA Europa League qualifying round spot will be given to 7th.
