The Wisper is a 29.715-kilometre-long (18.464 mi) small river in Hessen, Germany, right tributary of the Rhine.

Its source is in the western Taunus, Rheingau-Taunus-Kreis district, near a small village named Wisper (municipality Heidenrod). It flows southwest through a densely forested valley with some medieval castle ruins surrounded by a popular hiking area. A man-made lake, the Wispersee, is stocked with trout and is a popular fishing destination.

The Wisper flows into the Rhine at Lorch. The valley belong to the category of protected areas (nature reserve) within Germany’s Federal Nature Conservation Act.
