Germany's most beautiful regions

Discover the Westerwald

The Westerwald is basically located between the Rhine, the Sieg and the Lahn. This beautiful region offers varied entertainment for vacationers of all kinds. From gentle paddling on the ponds of the lake district, sampling fiery brandies in a distillery to marveling at the building wonders of times past-the Westerwald offers entertainment for the whole family. So it's no wonder that this region is one of Germany's most beautiful regions!

Sights in the Westerwald
Sayn Cultural Park
If you're traveling in the area, it's worth taking a detour to Bendorf. Here in the Sayn Culture Park, you can learn a lot about the fascinating production of iron. For over 100 years, iron was cast in the Sayner Hütte. Today, you can experience a piece of industrial history in an elaborate production via several augmented reality stations. Sayner Hütte is also very popular as a venue for events. Trade fairs and exhibitions are held here on a regular basis.

Raiffeisen Bridge
Already Julius Caeser built a wooden bridge over the Rhine in the year 55 B.C. in order to advance into "Geramanic territory". The Raiffeisen Bridge, which can be seen here today, was inaugurated in 1978 and officially opened to traffic. It is widely recognized as a cable-stayed bridge due to its distinctive pier construction and its rather untypical design for Germany.

Not only school classes learn something for life here, there are also special events like evening tours at dusk or photo workshops.
