From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mittelschwaben is a part of the Bavarian administrative region Swabia. It consists of the districts Günzburg, Neu-Ulm, Unterallgäu and the district-free town Memmingen.

The name Mittelschwaben was created in the 19th century to tell apart the Bavarian parts of Oberschwaben from the Baden-Württembergian.
