Therese von Lützow (born 4 July 1804 in Stuttgart; died 16 September 1852 in Tjilatjap, Java) was a German author.


She moved to Hamburg, and finally to Saint Petersburg, where her father, H. von Struve, was ambassador. She accompanied her second husband, Colonel von Lützow, to Java, where she died.


Her chief publication is the correspondence between Wilhelm von Humboldt and her friend Charlotte Diede, under the title Briefe an eine Freundin von Wilhehn von Humboldt (1847; 12th ed. 1891). Her other works include society novels, such as Lydia (1884) and Weltglück (1885), and several volumes of travel.
