    Mindelburg Castle is built on a hill, south west of Mindelheim. It is a typical mediaeval castle, with round fortified bastions, gates and moats. The oldest still visible parts of the building indicate that the castle was built in the late 12th century. It was later home to the Dukes of Teck and the von Frundsberg family. St. George’s Chapel, which was built in 1370 and redesigned in the Baroque style in 1718, houses the earliest Madonna figure in Mindelheim, dating from the late Gothic period (around 1490). In the vaulted tap room of the prebendary’s house, there is a fresco dating from about 1520 showing the lord of the castle, George I von Frundsberg, with some guests. Today, parts of the castle have been let, but the castle courtyard with its 27-metre well is accessible all year round and the observation tower is open from April to October. The chapel may be visited on an official guided tour. There is a restaurant (Burggaststätte) at the entrance to the castle (closed on Tuesdays).
