The Cincinnati Volksfreund was a daily and weekly German-language newspaper based in Cincinnati, Ohio, and published between 1850 and 1908. The newspaper's offices were located on the southwest corner of Vine and Longworth streets.
The paper was founded in October 1850 by Joseph A. Hemann and his editorials began appearing in March 1853 in the weekly edition called the Cincinnati Wöchentlicher Volksfreund. Originally neutral in politics, it later became the leading German Democratic newspaper of Ohio.
