Schwäbisch Gmünd (pronunciation: [ˈʃvɛːbɪʃ ˈɡmʏnt], until 1934: Gmünd) is a large town (61,186 inhabitants end 2018) in the eastern part of the German state of Baden-Württemberg. The town is the second largest in the Ostalb district and the whole East Württemberg region after Aalen. The town is a Grosse Kreisstadt since 1956, i.e. a chief town under district administration; it was the administrative capital of its own rural district until the local government reorganisation on 1 January 1973.

Schwäbisch Gmünd was a self-ruling free imperial city from the 13th century until its annexation to Württemberg in 1802.
