    With a cultural heritage rich in tourist highlights.
    The unique combination “Kulturpark Sayn” is the
    cultural masterpiece between the Rhine and the
    Moselle. The two premium hiking trails Rheinsteig
    and Saynsteig cross at the UNESCO World Heritage
    Limes. Scenic guided tours and hiking tours “An
    den Grenzen Roms” with a picnic at the Römerturm
    are popular leisure activities.

    On the Pulverberg, above Sayn, next to WP 1/54 watchtower reconstruction.

  • Sights in and around Bendorf and Sayn

    At close quarters, right behind the venerable
    Abtei Sayn with its beautiful cloister, climbing
    courses of every level attract visitors to the Kletterwald
    Sayn. Schloss Sayn, central point within
    the historical monument landscape, accommodates
    not only a castle chapel which is especially
    worth seeing, but also colourful salons and the
    Rheinische Eisenkunstguss-Museum (cast-iron art)
    with its valuable collection of iron products. The
    “Garten der Schmetterlinge” of the Fürstliche
    Schlosspark displays colourful butterflies in an
    exotic ambience.The monument area Sayner Hütte was awarded
    as historical landmark of civil engineering in 2010.
    Burg Sayn offers marvellous views of the Rheintal
    and the mill museum “Heins Mühle” lively demonstrates
    the production process from grain to
    wheat.The German Limes Road leads directly through
    the city of Bendorf. Roman bricks with the stamp
    of the 22nd Legion can be found incorporated in
    the western wall of the 800 year-old church St.

  • The small fort Fehrbach

    Between Bendorf and Hillscheid
    The small fort Fehrbach is located between WP 1/63 and WP 1/64.
