9910 Vogelweide is a main belt asteroid. It orbits the Sun once every 4.87 years.[2]

Discovered on September 30, 1973 by Cornelis Johannes van Houten and Ingrid van Houten-Groeneveld on photographic plates made by Tom Gehrels with the Samuel Oschin telescope at the Palomar Observatory, it was given the provisional designation "3181 T-2". It was later renamed "Vogelweide" after Walther von der Vogelweide, a German minstrel of the thirteenth century.[3]
