The area was a major centre for iron ore mining and associated industries. Today the Rhine port contains one of the largest oil storage area on the river. The town of Sayn is just a small town with no particular attractions for visitors, however the area around and into the Westerwald above provides some beautiful landscape and historical sites to explore.

Bendorf is on the right (east) bank of the Rhine north of Koblenz and the A48 on the B42.
