Immekath 1

Chambered Tomb


The tomb lies about 2.4 km northwest of the village in the forest.

Immekath 1 is a grand dolmen consisting of at three pairs of supporting stones probably without an enclosure. The current state of preservation is bad, several supporting stones and capstones are missing. The existing capstone lies diagonally in the chamber. The rectangular chamber is east-west orientated, 3.7 m long and 1.6 m wide. Six wall stones and one of formerly three capstones is preserved. The capstone measures 2 m x 1.8 m x 0.8 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. Walk. Follow the path for 200 meters and turn right, behind an older, fenced-in conservation. Follow this path in northern direction for about 350 m, passing a conservation of recent date on the left side. Shortly after this conservation, you follow a branching off to the left, which is rather overgrown, and then reaches the tomb after about 100 meters.
