High above Sayn, near Bendorf on the Rhine river, lies the 800-year-old castle (Burg) of the Princes of Sayn-Wittgenstein. From here you can enjoy a beautiful panoramic view from the heights of the “Westerwald” across the Rhine valley to the volcanic mountains of the Eifel. The inner courtyard hosts the castle tavern.


The castle can be reached either by foot, about 10 minutes from the Butterfly Garden and Sayn Palace, or by car via the recently constructed road coming off the road to Bendorf-Stromberg (L 306).
