Lars Jungnickel (born 31 August 1981 in Dohna) is a German footballer who plays as a midfielder for Dynamo Dresden.

Jungnickel is in his second spell with Dynamo Dresden, having joing the club as a child in 1987, and made his debut in the Regionalliga Nordost twelve years later. He spent two seasons in Dynamo's first-team, playing as a striker, and despite the club's relegation to, and subsequent failure to get promoted from, the NOFV-Oberliga, he showed promise, and in July 2001 he earned a move to Energie Cottbus of the Bundesliga, along with teammate Silvio Schroter.

Jungnickel only made three appearances in his first season with Cottbus, but made 23 appearances, mostly as a substitute, as the team finished bottom of the league. He missed much of the following season, but featured more regularly in the next two 2. Fußball-Bundesliga seasons, the latter of which saw the club promoted in third place. Back in the Bundesliga, Jungnickel only saw 20 minutes of action all season, and was released by Cottbus in July 2007.

Jungnickel then returned to Dynamo Dresden, now in the Regionalliga Nord, and helped the club qualify for the 3rd Liga in his first season back. He has been a regular first-team player at the club ever since, usually employed as a defensive midfielder.

Jungnickel was named in Germany's squad for the 2001 FIFA World Youth Championship, and won four caps for the under-21 team in 2002, scoring one goal.
