The 25-year-old passed a medical in Lower Saxony on Monday morning and put pen to paper on a four-year contract after the two clubs finally reached an agreement over an undisclosed transfer fee.
The Wolves had been chasing the Swiss player since the end of last season and he will now finally be reunited with his former Nurnberg coach Dieter Hecking.
"I'm delighted that Timm is going to strengthen our team," said Hecking, who took over the Wolves at the midway stage of last season.
"He has developed extremely well in recent years and brings with him everything that a central defender needs."
Klose has made 45 appearances in the Bundesliga for Nurnberg while he has been capped six times by his country.
He expects to add to both having taken "an important step" in his career by moving to Wolfsburg.
"I'm really looking forward to this new challenge and I will give everything so that we can be successful as a team," he said.
