Only 120m from the busy N374 between Borger and Buinen lies this medium sized Hunebed pair in their own little retreat surrounded by trees in the middle of a field. There is a small car parking space and an access path to the Hunebeds.

Although you can hear the passing cars, there is a peaceful atmosphere as soon as you are entering the wooded area with the Hunebeds. D28 Buinen is almost complete, only one of once four capstone is missing. One of the two remaining capstones (originally three) of D29 Buinen has a nice heart shape.

Just two kilometers out of Borger as you drive east towards Buinen, if you look to you right, in a sandy field, you will clearly see D28 and D29 in their own little state-owned space.

Indeed, all hunebedden except the ruinous one at Westernesch are nationally maintained. It gave me a little thrill of excitement that I had found this one so easily. It was quite discreetly signposted and might easily have been missed.

A short stroll of 50ms or so from the car and you approach to D29 first. D28 lies just 10 or 15ms beyond it. They are both very similarly sized, both having clearly originally having three capstones, but now both only have two. This two-for-the-price-of-one double whammy of hunebedden!
