Grafheuvel No 13 in the Westerheide is one of the most attractive of all. It's also the one the casual visitor is most likely to miss as it stands in a sheltered tree-lined glade just off the main heathland. Although not actually hard to find (if you are looking for it), it cannot be seen from the main path that follows the tree-line. It lies almost equidistant between Grave Mounds 9 and 7.

This barrow is a symmetrical grassy dome, rising to about 2 metres, and with a spread of approximately 15 metres.
