Neue Freie Presse ("New Free Press") was a Viennese newspaper founded by Adolf Werthner together with the journalists Max Friedländer and Michael Etienne on 1 September 1864 after the staff had split from the newspaper Die Presse. It existed until 1938.

Werthner was president of Oesterreichischen Journal-Aktien-Gesellschaft, the business entity behind the newspaper.

The editor from 1908 to 1920, and eventual owner, of the NFP was Moriz Benedikt.

Journalists employed by the paper included "Sil-Vara" (pseudonym of Geza Silberer) and Felix Salten.[1]

In Paris, its correspondent was Max Nordau, and from 1891, Theodor Herzl, both founders of the Zionist movement. Its music critics included Eduard Hanslick (1864–1904) and Julius Korngold (1904–1934).[2]

The paper was the frequent target of satirist Karl Kraus.
