Manuel Göttsching (born September 9, 1952 in Berlin) is a German musician and composer.

As the leader of the group Ash Ra Tempel or Ashra, one of the most notable German groups of the 1970s and 80s, as well as a solo artist, he is one of the most important guitarists of the Kosmische Musik genre. He also participated in the Cosmic Jokers sessions. His style and technique influenced dozens of artists in the post-Eno ambient and Berlin School of electronic music scenes in the 1980s and 1990s. His 1984 album E2-E4 has also been influential in the development of house and electronic music in general.

In 2000 Göttsching and Klaus Schulze released a studio album and a live album as Ash Ra Tempel. The live album was recorded as part of the Cornucopea concerts organised by Julian Cope at the Royal Festival Hall in London, England.
