Lucheng District (Chinese: 鹿城区; pinyin: Lùchéng Qū; Wenzhounese: luo zen) is a district of the city of Wenzhou, Zhejiang province, China. It is the central district and government seat of Wenzhou.

The literal meaning of the name Lucheng is the city of deer. It originated from a myth that a white deer was spotted in this area long time ago.

It has an area of 294.38 km2 (113.66 sq mi) and a population of 1,293,300 residents as of 2010. The other 2 districts of the Wenzhou urban area are Longwan and Ouhai.

Lucheng was built in the first year of Taining in the Eastern Jin Dynasty (323 AD). Since ancient times, merchants have gathered in Lucheng, known as the "Famous Town of East Ou".

In 2020, Lucheng District will achieve a regional GDP of 117.232 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 3.1% based on comparable prices.
