The castle of the family Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg is the highlight of the historic city centre and makes the townscape very special. The castle grounds invite you for a walk through the century old trees and colourful flowers. The castle have been inhabited for many generations. A part of it is a museum and invites you for a visit.
The town has developed to a well known Kneipp Spa with ultramodern rehab clinics: The clinics of the VAMED group, the Klinik Wittgenstein (Evangelical Johnneswerk) and the Lymph Clinic “Haus am Schlosspark” offer a broad spectrum of health care.
Bad Berleburg has developed into a vacation and hiking region. The exceptional WaldSkulpturenWeg, the premium hiking paths like the Wittgensteiner Schieferpfad (Wittgensteiner slate path), Via Adrina, Via Celtica, the Wisent path and last but not least the Rothaarsteig also offers plenty of outstanding hiking trails. If you like to enjoy nature, this is the right place to be – welcome in the natural paradise of Südwestfalen.
