The traditionally rich past of the 750-year-old residential town of Bad Berleburg can be felt in many places, especially during a walk through the castle park with its imposing trees and spacious pond systems. The castle of the Princes of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg is the centre of the historic old town and overlooks the city. In the old town, slate graces the roofs and walls of many houses and is a reminder of the mining tradition of the region.
But you can also discover pretty half-timbered houses and architectural treasures in the 23 villages around the core town, such as the Bonifatiuskirche in Raumland or the old school chapel in Sassenhausen. In the small, picturesque villages, tradition, customs and craftsmanship are still maintained and preserved. This is exactly makes our town of villages special.
