Hike along the Rhine Traumpfad Saynsteig (Sayn Trail)

A hiking tour in Sayn in search of traces of knights and Romans can be made along the Traumpfad Saynsteig. The trail goes through shady forests along natural paths to impressive caves. Tranquil forest sections alternate with incredibly beautiful views far into the Rhine valley and the Eifel.

current route information


The start of this Traumpfad on the Rhine is Sayn Castle, opposite the royal castle park. If the car is not parked at the castle but at the abbey church the start can be reached via the Brexbachstraße. The trail goes over the castle’s terrace up to Syn Castle and, at the walls which are also worth seeing, there is already the first magnificent view. Continuing on straight ahead, the path leads to the Oscar heights. Here there are great views of the abbey church, the romantic “Ancient Sayn”, the Rhine valley and the Eifel. The Sayn Trail crosses the L306 and reaches the edge of the forest at the Ottilie heights. The way now goes down via a side valley to the Brexbach brook through a varied landscape of water meadows to the Boy Scouts’ camp. A narrow path now leads upwards and meets the Rheinsteig.

The trail continues uphill to the World Heritage Site Upper Germanic and Rhaethian Limes with a reconstructed Roman tower. Now the almost level path allows relaxation, the Meisenhof invites the hiker to stop. The path that now follows across open fields again allows great views over the Rhine valley. Then downwards to Sayn. From the footbridge over the Brexbach brook, past the mill museum Heinsmühle (Heins Mill) it is only a few steps back to the castle.
