In the final of the 1986 DFB Cup Wohlfarth got three goals in the 5–2 victory against VfB Stuttgart, with Bayern Munich seen as heroic cup winners.

He played twice for the West German national team: 1986 and 1989.

At Bayern Munich he had to eke out his place in the main squad every season, against top class newcomers of the club. This he usually succeeded in doing. He became top scorer of the Bundesliga in 1989 with 17 goals and 1991 with 21. However he did not manage to score for the German national team.
