Christian Lønstrup (born April 4, 1971) is a Danish former football (soccer) player, and current manager of Danish club FC Helsingør. He most prominently played 253 games as a midfielder for Danish club FC København, with whom he won four Danish Superliga championships. He played three games and scored one goal for the Denmark national under-21 football team in 1991.

He had a very public trial versus his former club FC København, having allegedly received misleading guidance concerning the taxation of his salary upon returning to Denmark in 1998. The case was settled out of court for a fee believed to be around DKK 700.000.[1]
