By the way, did you know that there is a mountain that bears our name, admittedly not a high one – a small mountain, but who has that and if you want to know where the mountain got its name from, then please read on below the picture!
Forkersberg (393.6m) above Polenz or below Rückersdorf, north of the “old Bohemian glass route”.
FORKERSBERG The fields belonging to estate no. 88 in Polenz extend to the north via the Bohemian Glass Route (Stolpen – Neustadt) and via the parallel railway line (Stolpen – Neustadt) to the west, next to the 393.6 m high mountain to the east, which was named after the respective field owners of the estate 88, but now bears the name Forkersberg.
According to the current landowner, the land belonging to Gut 88 does not extend to the land known as Forkersberg.
There is no doubt about Gut 88, because the mountain was named after the respective owners.
Gut No. 88 (formerly No. 80) is located in Polenz on the right next to Dorfstraße (seen in the direction of the Polenzbach river) Today Polenzer Straße No. 117; 01844 Neustadt i. Sat district of Polenz; Owner Roland Barthel
The first owner of the estate around 1501 was Paul Glanz. See village chronicle Polenz.

The maintenance and determination of local area designations such as Forkersberg is the responsibility of a state commission at the surveying offices under the influence of the local area topographer (in the Pirna surveying office) and the respective municipality.
Since these regional place names (in contrast to GDR times) are only important again after German unity in 1992, a new or renaming of the Forkersberg is not to be expected anytime soon. Lt. Mr. Ender (surveying office Pirna area topographer)
