On the western ridge above the Mindeltal lies southwest of the city, the extensive complex of Mindelburg. It was once the seat of the Dukes of Teck and the family of Frundsberg, whose most famous member was George I von Frundsberg.
The oldest components that are visible today suggest a castle foundation in the late 12th century, probably to secure the Salz- und Handelsstraße from Munich via Landsberg and continuing on to Lake Constance.
