Neue Freie Presse ("New Free Press") known locally as "Die Presse" was a Viennese newspaper founded by Adolf Werthner together with the journalists Max Friedländer and Michael Etienne on 1 September 1864. 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).

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).[1]

The paper was the frequent target of satirist Karl Kraus.
