Hall effect measurements were carried out under high pressures up to 4.9 GPa in a single crystal of CeCu2Si2. The temperature dependence of the Hall coefficient is interpreted to be composed of two peaks below room temperature. The high-temperature peak shows strong pressure dependence, where the peak shifts from 20 K at ambient pressure to 125 K at 4.9 GPa. This peak is a consequence of the anomalous Hall effect due to skew scattering. The low-temperature peak shifts from 5 K at ambient pressure to 15 K at 4.9 GPa and the magnitude of the peak shows the maximum around 4.1 GPa at which the superconducting transition temperature also reaches the maximum.
