The cementery for Sugenheim and surrounding area is on a slope at the edge of a wood on the outskirts of the village of Ullstadt, some 3 km from Sugenheim and goes back to about 1620. Some repair and restoration of foundations of gravestones has taken place in recent years to prevent them from falling over on the steep slope.
