Ways to Strength and Beauty (German: Wege zu Kraft und Schönheit) is a 1925 German silent film directed by Nicholas Kaufmann and Wilhelm Prager. The film was produced by Ufa-Kulturfilmabteilung of Weimar Germany.

The action was an idealized, somewhat naive depiction of health and beauty in conformity with nature. The film offered a contrast to the rather hopeless lifestyles available in Berlin and other large cities of Germany during the twenties and became an immediate success. Finally it became the most popular and most important German kulturfilm of this period.

The film is best known as the first film to feature Leni Riefenstahl.
