The Kreisau Circle (German: Kreisauer Kreis) was a German anti-Nazi resistance group, founded in 1940 by Helmuth James Graf von Moltke (11 March 1907 – 23 January 1945) on his estate at Kreisau. The Circle drafted a Christian-conservative political program for post-war Germany.

Von Moltke was arrested in January 1944 after which most of his colleagues attached themselves to Colonel Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg's group which tried, unsuccessfully, to kill Hitler in July 1944.
