The Vossische Zeitung (more precisely: "(Königlich Privilegierte) Berlinische Zeitung von Staats- und Gelehrten Sachen") was the well known liberal German newspaper that was published in Berlin (1721–1934). Its predecessor was founded in 1704. Among the editors of the "aunt Voss" were Gotthold Ephraim Lessing, Willibald Alexis, Theodor Fontane and Kurt Tucholsky.

Until the second year of the Third Reich, it was generally regarded as the German national newspaper of record, like The Times and Le Temps. It was then removed by the governing party, the NSDAP who circulated their own nation-wide newspaper, the Völkischer Beobachter. That, in turn, fell with other products of the national socialist state with the end of the Second World War.


Hans Zehrer was foreign editor from 1925 to 1931, and then editor-in-chief.
