Friedrich Brugger (1815–1870), was a German sculptor.
Brugger was born 13 January 1815 at Munich. He studied at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts, after which he stayed in Italy from 1841 to 1843. He returned to Munich where he received commissions from Ludwig I of Bavaria, including busts in the Ruhmeshalle and large bronze statues. Together with Johann Martin von Wagner and Johann von Halbig, he created the Quadriga on the Siegestor (Victory Gate) arch in Munich. He designed and modelled the sculptured form for the monument to Maximilian II, cast in 1860 by Ferdinand von Miller, for the central square of the Altes Schloss (Old Palace) on Maximilianstraße in Bayreuth.
Brugger died 8 April 1870, and is buried in the Alter Südfriedhof (Old South Cemetery) in Munich (Area 16, Row 10, Plot 26; at ).
