München Süd (Munich South station) is a disused railway station and a railway goods station in the Munich borough of Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt. Train service stopped on July 1, 1985, the last buildings were demolished in 2005 to make room for office buildings.

The station is located on the Südring railway line, connecting Munich Central Station with Munich East. The public transport is now handled by Poccistraße Munich U-Bahn station, located to the west of the old railway station. The Isar Valley Railway used to start at the Südbahnhof, going via München Isartalbahnhof (Munich Isar Valley station) and Großhesselohe Isartalbahnhof railway station towards Wolfratshausen and Bichl.

Plans to rebuild the station were briefly considered in connection with a new Stammstrecke (main railway line) through central Munich. However, these plans were shelved in favour of a tunnel solution.
