  • The well tended cemetery, enclosed by wire mesh fencing, has a wrought iron gate mounted on two stone pillars. There are relatively many newer gravestones, compared with rather few older stones, which are at the outer left section of the cemetery.
  • The cemetery was repeatedly vandalised during the Nazi epoch.
  • In the mid-19th century a separate Jewish community existed in Neuhaus, once a nearby town in its own right,but now incorporated in Bad Neustadt. This community used the above cemetery.
