Immekath 2

Chambered Tomb


The tomb lies about 2 km northwest of the village on a tilled field in a small depression on a western slope, without direct access.

Immekath 2 is a grand dolmen consisting of at least four pairs of supporting stones. The current state of preservation is bad, only part of the chamber is present, the mound is heavily plowed. In 1931 it is said that there were still two enclosure stones, which were missing in 1932. The chamber is northwest-southeast orientated, according to Danneil the chamber was 7.5 m long, 3.8 m wide and had four capstones. Today, only one capstone and five wall stones are present, the chamber is 6.2 m long and 1.2 m inside. The capstone measures 2.3m x 1.7 m x 0.9 m.

Drive from Immekath on the K1117 in the direction to Riestedt. As the road turns north, a cobblestone road heads west, just before the last houses of Immekath. This road leads to the sports field. Continue straight on, the road becomes a gravel and sand track, and after 1.4 km you reach the edge of the forest, park here. The tomb lies 200 meters north of the slope and 50 meters before the edge of the forest in the field. That means it is recommend to visit the site only, if the field is lying fallow.
