The four megalithic tombs are located in the area of ??the municipality of Hammah belonging to the integrated municipality Oldendorf-Himmelpforten in the Elbe-Weser triangle in Lower Saxony in a former bog. During the draining and cultivating of the bog during the First World War, the stones of several tombs, which had originally been erected on a flat, sandy hilltop, on which the moor formation started later, unexpectedly came to light. The four tombs are part of a larger necropolis that stretches northeast of Hammah in the northwest-southeastern line.

Hammah 1 is located near the belonging to Hammah district Groß Sterneberg immediately east of the two places connecting Bahnhofstrasse. 1.1 km east-southeast of this are the tombs Hammah 2 and Hammah 3 at the southeastern end of the necropolis. They are only 20 meters north-south from each other. There are also two burial mounds at this site. Hammah 4 is about halfway between Hammah 1 and the tombs of Hammah 2 and Hammah 3.
