Tuchel has put pen to paper on a two-year contract, which would see him stay at the club until the summer of 2020.
The 44-year-old will replace PSG’s current boss, Unai Emery, who will leave at the end of the season.
Emery led the club to a domestic double, winning the Ligue 1 and the French Cup, but oversaw a disappointing outing in the Champions League, where the French champions were knocked out by Real Madrid in the quarterfinal.
Tuchel, who has previously managed German sides, Mainz 05 and Augsburg II, won the DFB Pokal with Dortmund in the 2016-2017 campaign.
