Timo Achenbach (born 3 September 1982 in Witten) is a German footballer.[1] He is a left-sided defender and midfielder. He started his footballing career as a youth player for teams such as his home team, FSV Witten and other clubs. At the age of fourteen he was to be noticed by Borussia Dortmund, where he was signed and for whom he played for the remainder of his youth career.

The 2002–03 season was a good one for the Dortmund amateur team as they won the league, and Achenbach marked himself out to be a top performer. He was bought by VfB Lübeck for 30,000 Euros in 2003–04, where he proved to be a useful player and was part of the team, but the team was relegated at the end of the season. Once again Achenbach would be loaned, to 1. FC Köln, for the 2004–05 season, where he played in both the first team and in the amateur team in the Northern Regional League.

After a period of switching clubs, Achenbach finished up in SpVgg Greuther Fürth and has since signed a contract keeping him at the club until season 2007–08. In the 2009–10 season at 2. Bundesliga side Alemannia Aachen, Achenbach was attracting attention from clubs worldwide thanks to his prestigious skill, versatility and jinking runs.
