Bendorf is a small town in Rhineland-Palatinate (Rheinland-Pfalz). The town consists of the neighbourhoods of Bendorf, Sayn, Mülhofen, Stromberg.



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.
