    The Walburgis Chapel, which was first mentioned around 1350 and was built in its current form in 1697, probably gave the mountain its name. The bronze statue of Saint Walburga, which stands in front of the chapel and was inaugurated in 2000, is very striking.

    The Ehrenbürg is a 531.9 m above sea level. NHN high witness mountain in the foothills of the Franconian Alb. With his Doppelkuppe he lies in the municipality of Kirchehrenbach, Leutenbach and Wiesenthau in the Upper Franconian district of Forchheim (Bavaria). The north point is the 513.9 m high Walberla (in the vernacular often used for the entire Ehrenbürg name), the southern tip of the 531.7 m high Rodenstein (formerly called Bodenstein). From the mountain, for example, the view reaches the Wiesenttal.

    On the Walberla stands the Catholic Sankt Walburgis chapel, which is named for the mountain. It was built in the 17th century and is dedicated to Walburga. A probably first made of wood chapel was first mentioned around 1350. The present chapel was built by the lords of Wiesenthau 1697. Changes were last made in 1901 (equipment). The chapel is one of the monuments of Kirchehrenbach. On May 1, 2000, as part of an ecumenical service, a bronze statue of St. Walburga was consecrated in front of the chapel.

    Very striking is the bronze statue of Saint Walburga, which stands in front of the chapel Saint Walburgis Chapel. The statue was cast in bronze by Ernst Steinacker and inaugurated on May 1, 2000, with the first ecumenical service in the history of this place. Very beautiful sculpture with a plaque on the life of St. Walburga and the statue, worth seeing.

    Every year, the Walberla Festival takes place on the 1st weekend of the month of May. A visit is worthwhile. Best to take a picnic blanket and enjoy the feast, delicious food and nature.

    After the ascent you will be rewarded with a magnificent view. A nature trail leads around the mountain and continues to be the Walburgis Chapel with the bronze statue of St. Walburga.

    When you enter its plateau, the view is magically attracted by the chapel of St. Walburgis.

    The position of this HL is still wrong. The chapel is located about 300 m as the crow flies southeast on the mountain.
