Christian Timm (born 27 February 1979 in Herten, North Rhine-Westphalia) is a Football Striker who plays for Karlsruher SC.

Starting his career at Dortmund in 1996 he managed just 15 appearances for the club and eventually moved to 2. Fußball-Bundesliga club FC Cologne where he went on to make 65 appearances in his three years at the club scoring 15 goals and helping the club gain promotion into the Bundesliga. He was tipped for national team selection but a series of injuries meant he was regularly out of action. In 2002 he moved to FC Kaiserslautern and then on to SpVgg Greuther Fürth two years later where he made over 81 appearances for the club and netted 21 goals.

His good performances attracted several Bundesliga clubs and Timm decided to move to Karlsruher SC in July 2007, where he signed a three-year contract. On 27 June 2009 his contract was extended until 30 June 2012. In July 2011 the club told Timm that he will not be part of the squad any longer, yet all subsequent attempts to reach mutual consent on an earlier termination of his contract failed. Timm made use of his right to participate in the training sessions but he had not been given a shirt number for the 2011-12 season.
