Denzingen is a district of the city of Günzburg in the Swabian district of Günzburg . The church village is located south of Günzburg in the immediate vicinity and extends from the Günztal up to the edge of the Günz valley.


With its Neolithic and Roman traces of settlement, the place belongs to the oldest settlement area in the area.

Denzingen was first mentioned in the 12th century when the cleric Sigeboto von Günzburg donated a mill to "Tainzingen" (= Denzingen) to the St. Ulrich and Afra monastery in Augsburg .

On September 12, 1944, there was an American bombing raid on Denzingen, in which nine people were killed and numerous residents were wounded.

The previously independent community of Denzingen was incorporated into Günzburg on May 1, 1978 .
