Walter-Herwig Schuchhardt (March 8, 1900 – January 14, 1976) was a German classical archaeologist and art historian born in Hanover. He specialized in ancient Greek art, particularly sculpture and art from the "Parthenon era" (5th century BC). He was the son of archaeologist Carl Schuchhardt (1859-1943).

Schuchhardt studied archaeology at the Universities of Tübingen, Göttingen and Heidelberg, earning his doctorate in 1923 with a dissertation on Pergamon friezes, titled Die Meister des grossen Frieses von Pergamon.
