Günther Lemmerer (born 1952) was an Austrian luger who competed in the early 1980s. He won the gold medal in the men's doubles event at the 1982 FIL European Luge Championships in Winterberg, West Germany.
He won the men's doubles overall Luge World Cup title three times (1979–80, 1980-1, 1981-2).
After retiring from competition in the mid-1980s, Lemmerer became a development coach for the International Luge Federation (FIL), developing luge teams from Greece, Bermuda, India, and Somalia. Several of those teams competed at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, but did not medal in any luge event.
