Coat of arms Mindelheim

Mindelheim is also called the "Frundsbergstadt". A festival to honor Georg von Frundsberg is held every 3 years. Unfortunately we missed it.
Please use the installed links below to videos about this event.
The Frundsberg family originally came from Tyrol.
Frundsberg served Kaiser Maximilian I faithfully. He was always active on the battle field and his soldiers respected him.
His relationship to the successor of Maximilan was not good, and Georg von Frundsberg became bitter. But the people from Mindelheim still loved him.
He died on August 20th, 1528.

How it could have been
Many thanks to BR-0nline
In the middle of the 15th century the Frundsberg dynasty took possession of Mindelheim and the Mindelburg. They became famous through Georg von Frundsberg who was called the "father of the ancients" shortly after he was successful defeating enemies Kaiser Maximilian and Karl V.
According to my understanding he was a very brave man who also showed mercy despite the fact that he spent most of his life fighting.
Please check the Internet for more information. I am not an historian.
Mindelheim is still proud of him and the festival which is celebrated in this town is a proof but also a tourist attraction with lots of music, marching, and colorful costumes.
I enjoy events like this everywhere and had always fun talking to the participants. Just check our English web site about Ontario.
Even when we missed the festival we enjoyed our visit to Mindelheim. There is so much to see and to explore in this little town of 14 000.
