For a mountain, the Walberla in Franconia has quite modest proportions. But ist importance for the region is huge. To the east of Forchheim, the 513 metre high mountain range towers over the towns of Kirchehrenbach, Leutenbach and Wiesenthau. The Walberla is home to the Sankt-Walburgis-Kapelle, a chapel which was built in the 17th century. A magnificent track leads up to it through the dry grasslands that are typical for this area. Trees, bushes and flowers adorn the path. Every so often, walkers pause to admire the wonderful view. Rare orchids can also be found high up on the mountain range.The chapel gives the mountain, which is actually called the Ehrenbürg, its popular name.
