Ludwig Schwabe (June 24, 1835 – February 20, 1908) was a German classical philologist and professor of classical archaeology born in Giessen.

In 1863 he became an associate professor at Giessen, and soon afterwards relocated to the University of Dorpat as a professor of classical philology. In 1872 he was appointed professor of classical philology and chair of classical archaeology at the University of Tübingen, where in 1881–82 he was university rector.
