The Augsburg–Buchloe railway is a double-track main line in the German state of Bavaria. It runs from Augsburg to Buchloe. Other major towns on the route are Bobingen and Schwabmünchen. It was built as part of the Ludwig South-North Railway, one of the oldest lines in Germany.
The construction of the 60.2 km long line from Augsburg Hauptbahnhof via Bobingen and Buchloe to Kaufbeuren was authorised by a Bavarian law of 25 August 1843 and opened on 1 September 1847. The 20.3 km long section from Buchloe to Kaufbeuren is now considered part of the Allgäu Railway.
