Dunkel is an unincorporated community in Christian County, Illinois, United States.[1]

Dunkel was laid out in 1876.[2] Dunkel's post office was established May 4, 1877 and disestablished August 31, 1902; the community is now served by the Pana post office. It was situated along the Illinois Central Railroad. It was named for Elias Dunkel, an early postmaster.[3] All that remains of Dunkel today are a few houses and a grain elevator operated by nearby Assumption Co-Op.
