The III. Path or The Third Path (Ger: Der III. Weg, Der Dritte Weg) is a minor far-right and neo-Nazi political party in Germany.[4][5]

It was founded on September 28, 2013 by former NPD officials, and activists from the banned Free Network South. They have ties with Assad's government in Syria, Hezbollah in Lebanon,[6] the National Corps, Right Sector and Svoboda in Ukraine[7] and the Nordic Resistance Movement in the Nordic countries.[8] Their founder and chairman is Klaus Armstroff.[9] The party mostly operates in Thuringia, Bavaria and Brandenburg.[10]

A group of people bearing Der Dritte Weg flags marched in through a town in Saxony on 1 May, the day before the Jewish remembrance of the Holocaust, carrying a banner saying "Social justice instead of criminal foreigners". The Central Council of Jews said that the state government should ban such marches if it were serious about tackling right-wing extremism.[11] The Third Path stood in the 2019 EU elections
