The Mindel is a river in Bavaria, southern Germany. The Mindel originates west of Kaufbeuren, in the Allgäu region, and flows generally north. It flows into the Danube in Gundremmingen, east of Günzburg. The towns Mindelheim, Burgau and Thannhausen lie along the Mindel.
The Mindel gave its name to the Mindel Glaciation in the Alps. This glacial period is called Elsterian Stage in northern Europe, and Anglian Stage in United Kingdom.
