Hunebed D20 Drouwen lies just south of Steenhopenweg in the village of Drouwen in a grassy, tree-bordered park. D20 is almost complete and still boasts all but one of its original six capstones. Up till 1998 only one of these was in place but, following restoration that year, all now sit on their supporting sidestones. As with its twin, D19, the entrance portal is well preserved, but what makes D20 stand out is its almost complete circle of 21 kerbstones: the positions of the missing six kerbstones are indicated by concrete slabs.

To reach this hunebed, start from the Markeweg bus stop in Drouwen, walk a few metres south to Steenhopenweg and turn right (west) into it. After about 350 metres, you will meet signs indicating hunebeds to your left.

There are two hunebedden at Drouwen, just about 50 metres apart and another one (D26) about a kilometer away. D20 is one of the twins. We were actually on our way to Bronneger to see the five there, but passing through Drouwen to get there, we suddenly glimpsed the twins of D19 and D20 no more than 10 metres apart.

They have there own big space in parkland on the edge of the village. People come here often - we could see the tracks in the snow – to exercise their dogs, play with their kids or just as a point to walk to and from. How splendid that this pair of lovelies are still enjoyed.
