Sayn castle and palace has been the neo-Gothic residence of the Princes’ of Sayn-Wittgenstein since 1850. The palace with mediaeval origins, severely damaged in World War II, was only recently restored to its former splendour. Prince Alexander and Princess Gabriela had put great efforts in the reconstruction of their revitalization for tourism and cultural events. In the palace, the Rhenish Museum for Ornamental Cast Iron is worth a visit, just as the princely staterooms and the private chapel exhibiting the precious mediaeval relief of Saint Elizabeth. The chapel may be used for weddings. In the surrounding park with its old trees one finds a top attraction, the Sayn Castle Butterfly Garden, a paradise for nature friends and photographers. Since 2006 visitors can enjoy the artistic atmosphere of “Diesayn Burg”, the tavern of Sayn Castle, with its fine kitchen. A falconer presents his hawks and eagles in spectacular flight shows. The palace offers elegantly furnished rooms for events.
