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.

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.
