    The mountain chapel, built in 1419 and dedicated to St. Mauritius, gave the mountain its name - Moritzberg. Very nice little chapel right next to the "Berggasthof Moritzberg", after the fair you can go for a morning drink and the Hindenburg tower. The chapel of St. Mauritius on Moritzberg belongs to the city of Röthenbach a. d. Pegnitz and is cared for by the Protestant parish in Leinburg.

    On the summit of Moritzberg stands the mountain chapel dedicated to St. Maurice, built in 1419 and commissioned by Nuremberg patrician Herdegen Valzner. In addition, he had a brother house built, in which a hermit lived, who performed his prayers in the St. Mauritius chapel.
