Roland Wohlfarth (born 11 January 1963 in Bocholt) is a former footballer who played as a forward.

He was active in the Bundesliga from 1981 until 1998, spanning 287 games and 120 goals.[1] At first Wohlfarth played for Borussia Bocholt in his youth, then for Duisburg, Bayern Munich, Leipzig and Bochum. His career ended in the year 2000 at Wuppertal. With Bayern Munich he won the Bundesliga in 1985, 1986, 1987, 1989 and 1990, as well as DFB Cup winners in 1986.

In the final of the 1986 DFB Cup Wohlfarth got three goals in the 5–2 victory against VfB Stuttgart, with Bayern Munich seen as heroic cup winners.

He played twice for the West German national team: 1986 and 1989.[2]

At Bayern Munich he had to eke out his place in the main squad every season, against top class newcomers of the club. This he usually succeeded in doing. He became top scorer of the Bundesliga in 1989 with 17 goals and 1991 with 21. However he did not manage to score for the German national team.

In the first doping judgement of the Bundesliga from 16 February 1995, Wohlfarth was convicted of the gross laches intake of forbidden substances (anorectics), and received a two-month ban.[3]
