Bad Berleburg Cemetery houses the graves of the princely family of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, who have made their home in the nearby Bad Berleburg Castle. The latest burial is that of Richard, 6th Prince of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg in 2017 and his grave remains unmarked for now.
The princely family lies in the corner of the cemetery and is separated from the regular cemetery by a fence. It actually took the help of several friendly inhabitants of the town to help us find it. Unfortunately, there is very little information on the family available. Richard, 6th Prince of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg was married to Princess Benedikte of Denmark, the sister of Queen Margrethe II of Denmark, and their son is now Gustav, 7th Prince of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg. Princess Benedikte, her son, his partner and Benedikte’s daughter Nathalie still live in Bad Berleburg Castle.
