There are two peaks of Ehrenbürg, the Walberla in the north and the Rodenstein in the south, which are about 750 meters apart. We visited Walberla which was a large fortified center settlement on the whole mountain that dated back to 1400-750 BC. The hike was pretty steep the entire way, but was not that far and was on a well noticed path. The stone formations were a small taste of the majestic formation that I experienced at the Bastei Bridge. If you can't make the long drive to Bastie or you're just looking for something locally to save money you can drive the quick hour to Walberla from Grafenwoehr for some Instaworthy shots.
According to the Walberla Official Website , Walberla is made up of "a layered landscape form created by weathering. In most horizontal sediment layers it inevitably forms by changing soft and hard layers. The hard layer is removed more slowly, the underlying softer layer is weathered faster. This undermines the hard layer. It breaks and gets a sharp edge, which moves back and forth. If this exposes the next hard layer, the same happens with the underlying softer layer. The next level arises." I couldn't help but take some close ups of all of the beautiful moss varieties growing on the stones. The shades of green and gold were stunning.
