Passage Grave


Wulfen (also Hoher Berg) is a very well preserved neolithic megalithic tomb on the Hohen Berg in Wulfen. Originally there were two megalithic tombs in Wulfen, but one of them was destroyed in 1883. The preserved site belongs to the type of the passage graves. It consists of eight wall and three cover stones. The length of the tomb is 3.60 m. On the south side there is an access to the burial chamber. The tomb was discovered in 1784 and opened. The findings are now in the Museum of Köthen and testify to a long-lasting use of the grave. The tomb is to be considered, historically, as the most important and richest site of Anhalt.

The site is unfortunately not signposted. Coming from Köthen, one drives shortly after the village sign on the left in the street Hoher Berg. After about 230 m you reach the tomb, which is located on the right of the road on a small, well-kept mound.
