Arne Friedrich (-deˈaɐ̯nə ˈfʁiːdʁɪç) (born 29 May 1979 in Bad Oeynhausen, North Rhine-Westphalia) is a German international football defender, who plays for the German national team.

As of October 2011, Friedrich has represented his country on 82 occasions, his debut coming in the 2 2 draw against Bulgaria in Sofia on 21 August 2002.

He was included in the 23-man squad for the 2006 World Cup, where Germany finished third. Friedrich started almost every game and was very instrumental in getting Germany to the Third Place match. He is a very versatile player, playing full back, center back, and occasionally a more midfield position. He was also called up to Germany's Euro 2008 and World Cup 2010 squads.
