Xavier Daniel Hochstrasser (born 1 July 1988 in Onex, Switzerland), is a Swiss footballer who currently plays for FC Luzern as a defensive midfielder or a winger. He is known for his superb crossing and ability to set up goals, and specializes in corner kicks.

He has 8 caps and 2 goals for the Switzerland national under-21 football team, earning his first cap in 2007 and completing his transition to the senior level Switzerland national football team in October 2009, when he was called up to the squad that would be expected to take part in the exhibition games leading up to and the qualifying matches for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. He was not used by coach Ottmar Hitzfeld for any of these games however, and duly failed to make the squad that took part in the tournament in South Africa in summer 2010.

Hochstrasser played both legs (a 3 - 2 home win in which he scored and a 4 - 1 away loss) of Young Boys' 2010 11 UEFA Champions League campaign against Tottenham Hotspur. They were knocked out by the club, emerging from the two games having amassed an aggregate score of 6 - 4 in Spurs' favor.
