"Die Gedanken sind frei" is a German protest song about the freedom of thought. The text and the melody can be found in Lieder der Brienzer Mädchen (songs of the girls from Brienz), printed in Bern, Switzerland, between 1810 and 1820. The original lyricist and the composer are unknown, though the most popular version "Aus Neukirch bei Schönau" (today Nowy Kościół) was rendered by Hoffmann von Fallersleben in his 1842 collection Schlesische Volkslieder mit Melodien (Silesian folk songs with melodies).
