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.
