Blindheim (in English also known as Blenheim) is a municipality in the Bavarian district of Dillingen in southern Germany, consisting of several villages. It is north of Augsburg, on the left bank of the Danube River. Its population is roughly 1,700.

For administrative purposes, it is affiliated with the municipal association of Höchstädt an der Donau.

Since about 1700 the Lordship of Blindheim in the Electorate of Bavaria has been held by the Counts of Rechberg.

On 13 August 1704 the Battle of Blenheim (German: Schlacht von Höchstädt) was fought in the vicinity, having decisive importance on the War of Spanish Succession.
