Heinrich Adam (1787, Nördlingen - 15 February 1862, Munich) was a German painter.

Heinrich Adam, a brother of Albrecht Adam, was born at Nordlingen in 1787. He studied the art of painting at Augsburg and Munich, and distinguished himself as a painter of landscapes and as an engraver. In 1811 he stayed with Albrecht at the Lake of Como, and painted in water-colours. He also engraved six hunting-pieces, after his brother Albrecht, at Milan, in 1813. Subsequently he painted landscapes and views of towns, which are executed with great truthfulness. He died at Munich in 1862. In the Pinakothek there are by him a 'View of the Marienplatz in Munich' surrounded by 14 smaller views, and a 'View of the Max-Joseph-Platz,' also surrounded by 14 smaller views.
