Klecken (Hunebed) — Fieldnotes

South of the village Klecken close to the K12 lies this impressive 48x6m restored hunebed. According to information board is the best preserved archaeological monument in the district of Harburg. As with many tombs in Germany, many stones were removed to use them as building material. 1892 the hunebed was restored by the forestry official Schneemann, who filled some of the gaps and had some of the fallen stones erected. Today we can see 76 kerbstones and in the northern end the burial chamber. The guardian stones set up at the corners are not original.

Access and parking is quite easy, there is a parking space on the opposite of the street.

Krelingen (Passage Grave) — Fieldnotes

This signposted passage grave lies northeast of the village Krelingen. Parking and access is quite easy, you have to walk only about 70m from the road.

The site is northwest-southeast orientated. The chamber is about 8 x 2 m, from the original twelve supporting stones only eleven still exists. According to the information board, in the 19th century all capstones were removed to build a bridge, but four larger stones lie in the immediate vicinity of the tomb.

Sieben Steinhäuser — Fieldnotes

The Sieben Steinhäuser (aka Siebensteinhäuser) are a group of five passage graves, which are situated within the NATO Bergen-Hohne Training Area. The only public access to the tombs begins at a military checkpoint in Ostenholz, about 4 kilometers southeast of the motorway interchange Walsrode. Access to the site is only possible on weekends and public holidays from 8am and 6pm, if no military practice takes place.

On my last attempt, during my return from a holiday on Föhr, access to the sites was unfortunately not permitted, as the Training Area was not open to the public :-(.

I found the following link, which may inform if access is permitted or not.
