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 are traveling in the Westerwald, it is worth making a detour to Bendorf. Here in the Sayn Cultural Park, you can learn a lot about the fascinating production of iron. Iron was cast in the Sayn ironworks for over 100 years. Today, you can experience a piece of industrial history in an elaborate production with several augmented reality stations. Sayner Hütte is also a very popular venue for events. Trade fairs and exhibitions are regularly held here.

The Raiffeisen Bridge on the edge of the Westerwald, which you can see here, was inaugurated in 1978 and officially opened to traffic.
