The 1967–68 Regionalliga was the fifth season of the Regionalliga, the second tier of the German football league system. The league operated in five regional divisions, Berlin, North, South, Southwest and West. The five league champions and all five runners-up, at the end of the season, entered a promotion play-off to determine the two clubs to move up to the Bundesliga for the next season. The two promotion spots went to the Regionalliga Berlin champions Hertha BSC Berlin and Regionalliga Süd runners-up Kickers Offenbach.
