    The Kalvarienberg is located in the middle of the juniper reserve "Lampertstal" in the municipality of Blankenheim. It is the largest contiguous juniper area in North Rhine-Westphalia. Pasque Flower, 31 species of orchid and gentians can be found on the juniper heaths. At an altitude of 517 meters above sea level, from Kalvarienberg you have a wonderful view over the rolling hills of the Dollendorf limestone basin to the volcanic cones of Aremberg, Hoher Acht and Nürburg.

    From the 523 meter high Calvary in the nature reserve Lampertstal one has a wide view over the Eifel. Thus, the Hohe Acht and 23 kilometers away Nürburg can be seen. You can also see the surrounding communities like Ripsdorf. The Alendorfer Kalvarienberg is one of the so-called Eifel views recognized by the Nature Park Nordeifel.

    The term Calvary is derived from the Latin translation of the Aramaic mountain name Golgota of Vulgata, where it is given as Calvariae locus, Latin for "the skull place".
    Calvary is today called about life-size reproductions of the suffering of Christ in an elevated place, often only the crucifixion group, but also more extensive groups of sculptures of the path of suffering.
    Kalvarienberg Alendorf (up to about 1660 Kelberg) is a 523 meter high lookout mountain, at whose ascent are the stations of a crossroads. The Stations of the Cross starts at the gothic church of St. Agatha (1494) between Alendorf and Ripsdorf.

    The Calvary offers a beautiful Eifel view of the peaks to the Hohe Acht and the Tuscany of the Eifel. If you're lucky, the friendly shepherd with his flock is there, then everything looks even more beautiful.

    The Kalvarienberg Alendorf is a 523 meter high calvary in the nature reserve Lampertstal near Alendorf, a place in the municipality of Blankenheim in the Euskirchen district.
    Count Salentin Ernst von Manderscheid-Blankenheim (* 1630) realized the idea of an ancestor who the Alendorfer landscape and the (originally so called) Kelberg are said to have reminded of those in Jerusalem. Between 1663 and 1680, Salentin had seven stations of the cross and a chapel built on the mountain, first according to the older tradition. In the 19th century, seven other stations were added. The chapel at the site of today's cross no longer exists. The partly heavily weathered stations were restored with the support of the NRW Foundation.

    Absolutely worth seeing! The vegetation is not wrongly called "Eifel Tuscany". The Northern Eifel Nature Park has one of the most spectacular "Eifel views" in the immediate vicinity of the summit cross. The all-round view is fantastic when the weather is clear and extends to the "Hohe Acht", the highest point in the Eifel, 23 kilometers away.

    The juniper mountain is already a beautiful sight, but the view to the Aremberg is really great.
