Passage Grave


The impressive remnants of this passage grave are located in a small grove about 2 km west of Westerwanna, directly on the road Postweg. Parking is easy at the edge of the road.

All three capstones, four pairs of support stones both endstones are present, though not all in situ. From the entrance on the southeast side are still four fallen stones to see. The northern capstone carries over 20 cup marks. The chamber is still surrounded by the considerable remains of the former mound, the enclosure stones are missing.

In the immediate vicinity of the tomb there are numerous burial mounds. They are the remainder of a larger burial ground.
