Raimond Aumann (born 12 October 1963 in Augsburg (District Oberhausen), West Germany) was a German footballer. His nickname is Balu (Germanized version of Baloo the bear in the Jungle Book).

He was a goalkeeper in the Bundesliga between 1982 and 1994. The first two years he was only reserve keeper of Bayern Munich (first choice was Jean-Marie Pfaff). In 1984 he became number 1 for the first time until his injury in November 1985. When Jean-Marie Pfaff left Bayern Munich in 1988, Raimond Aumann finally became number 1. He was considered one of the best German goalkeepers at that time.

With FC Bayern Munich he won six German championships and twice the German Cup before he transferred in 1994 to Beşiktaş, where he was to help them to a 1995 league victory. He retired from football in November 1995.

Aumann played four times internationally in 1989 and 1990. He was a member of Germany's squad for the 1990 World Cup, but did not play in the tournament.

Currently he is supporters and fan club contact person for Bayern Munich.
