Lomnický štít (Lomnický peak) is one of the highest and most visited mountain peaks in the High Tatras mountains of Slovakia. Connected by cable car to Tatranská Lomnica, its summit is 2634 metres above sea level, making it the second highest peak in the High Tatras after Gerlachovský štít.

Since 1940, tourists have reached the peak by cable car, which was the most modern in Europe at the time of opening.  It is also possible to climb the peak from Lomnický Saddle, but this is only permitted with a mountain guide.
