We study two kinds of integral Menger-type curvatures. We find a threshold value of α 0, a Hölder exponent, such that for all αα 0 embedded C 1,α manifolds have finite curvature. We also give an example of a \({C^{1,\alpha_0}}\) injective curve and higher dimensional embedded manifolds with unbounded curvature.
