The 11. Fallschirmjäger-Division (11th Parachute Division) was a fallschirmjäger (airborne) division of the German military during the Second World War, active in 1945.

The division was formed in March 1945 near Linz, out of a disparate collection of Luftwaffe units including aircrew from Jagdgeschwader 101. It contained the 37th, 38th and 39th Fallschirmjäger Regiments, and the 11th Fallschirmjäger Artillery Regiment.[1]

The division did not manage to form fully before the end of the war, and only isolated kampfgruppen saw combat.[1]
