1. Friedhofskapelle Sankt Maria
The Catholic cemetery chapel dedicated to St. Mary in Krumbach's Westfriedhof was built in the 18th century as a votive church. It is also known as Feldkapelle or Gottesackerkapelle. The name Feldkapelle comes from the fact that until the 20th century the chapel was still outside the market or the town of Krumbach. The building has always been referred to as the Gottesackerkapelle, because the cemetery, now called Westfriedhof, in which the chapel stands, was established in the year in which the first small chapel was built – 1733. This relocation of the cemetery from the city took place because the previous cemetery of Krumbach – around the parish church of St. Michael – became too small.
2. ehem. Synagoge
The Jewish Community of Hürben was a Jewish community that existed from 1675 to 1942 in the Swabian town of Hürben – since 1902 part of the town of Krumbach (Swabia) – in the district of Günzburg in Bavaria. It had 652 parishioners in 1840 and 123 in 1900. In 1938, all Jewish citizens of Hürben still living there were first taken to Günzburg prison. By 1941, 27 people were able to emigrate, another 18 moved to other cities and the last 16 were deported from Hürben and murdered in 1942. A total of 38 Jews who were born in Hürben or Krumbach or lived here for a long time perished during the National Socialist era.
The Maria Hilf Church, officially St. Maria, helper of Christians, is a Catholic parish church in Hürben, the eastern part of Krumbach (Swabia). It was built from 1966 to 1968 and is the largest church in southern Germany built after the Second World War. The fact that such a large church was built is due to the fact that the population of Krumbach was roughly doubled after the war due to the influx of displaced people and continued to grow in the following years. The construction was planned by the Ulm architects Manfred Wacker and Erich Niederbacher.
