    The Way of the Cross is very impressive.

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