The world No 58, seeded seven in Nuremberg, deployed her strong long ball game to see off the German in one hour 24 minutes.
The Constanza-born Halep, a semi-finalist in Rome already this season, only dropped one set en route to her maiden title.
Petkovic, a former top 10 player whose ranking has sunk to 109, was competing in her first final since 2011 after a series of injuries.
