Hitz is expected to compete for a first team place against Roman Burki, with veteran Roman Weidenfeller having departed.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Hitz said: “After five very special years at Augsburg on both a sporting and personal level, I wanted to experience something different.
“I’m looking forward to the challenge of a club as big as BVB and especially to the Champions League matches.”
