Bad Berleburg: City of villages

Bad Berleburg, locaated North-East within the District of Siegen-Wittgenstein, is for many tourists the gateway to the hiking and adventure world of the Rothaargebirge. Bad Berleburg, home of the Princes zu Sayn-Wittgenstein, has plenty to offer for visitors. The castle of Berleburg – a Baroque premise of 1733 is always worth a trip. The castle museum shows the history of the Princely House of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg.

Everywhere in the city, the whiff of history is to sense with tradition and customs. But the future is also at home in Bad Berleburg. Here the threads for the wisent project come together. The supporting association „wisent world Wittgenstein“ has its headquarters in Bad Berleburg, coordinates and controls the history and the success of the wisent project from here.
