Holm Hansen Munthe (1 January 1848 - 23 May 1898) was a Norwegian architect.
Between 1878 and 1885 he cooperated with Henrik Nissen. From 1889 he worked for the Holmenkol-Voxenkol-Selskabet, among others drawing the well-known Frognerseteren restaurant in the so-called dragon style.
Emperor Wilhelm II of Germany, vacationing in Norway, noticed these buildings and commissioned the erection of his Rominten Hunting Lodge in East Prussia; however these buildings were largely destroyed after World War II, remnants of the Lodge are used as the seat of the administration at the Kaliningrad Central Park. The Kongsnæs' sailors station in Potsdam was partially destroyed in 1945. Currently it is planned to re-erect the complete complex.
In 1898 Munthe was appointed city architect in Kristiania, but he died before actually assuming office.
