The society for the promotion and preservation of the Sayn Abbey e.V. has since 1981 set itself the task of carrying out numerous tasks in order to maintain the Romanesque abbey in Sayn and the monuments in the surroundings. Since its existence membership fees and donations have been invested in the particularly historical and cultural setting of Sayn.

The society for the promotion and preservation of the Sayn Abbey e.V.  had its 25th anniversary on 19th November 2006.
Also on this day the commemoration year began for the birth of Saint Elisabeth 800 years earlier. Because of the arm relic of the saint which is kept in the palace chapel the place is particularly connected with the places in which Elisabeth was active.
