The Free State of Lippe (German: Freistaat Lippe) was a German state formed after the Principality of Lippe was abolished following the German Revolution of 1918.

After the end of World War II, Lippe was restored from Nazi rule. This autonomy ended in January 1947, when the Control Commission for Germany - British Element (CCG/BE) incorporated Lippe into the new German state of North Rhine-Westphalia created three months earlier. The British established a number of military bases in North Rhine-Westphalia, one of which was located within the former boundaries of the Free State of Lippe.
