Christoph Westerthaler (born January 11, 1965) is a retired Austrian football player and now football manager of lower league side SV Völs.

Nicknamed Gischi, Westerthaler was a small-built striker who started his professional career at FC Wacker Innsbruck and stayed with them for 9 years, split by a 2 season period at LASK Linz. With the Tyrolean side he won 2 league titles and 2 domestic cups. In 1994 he moved to SK Vorwärts Steyr only to rejoin LASK two years later. In 1997 he moved abroad and played in Germany for the two major Frankfurt teams and VfL Osnabrück.

In the summer of 2001 he finished his career as a player because of a knee cartilage damage.
