Westerwanna 03

Passage Grave


About 4 km northwest of Westerwanna lies within a radius of about 300 m, a group of five megalithic tombs, consisting of the tombs Westerwanna 01, Westerwanna 02, Westerwanna 03, Westerwanna 04 and Westerwanna 14.

Westerwanna 03, a passage grave, lies only 80 m southeast of Westerwanna 02. The state of preservation is moderate, the site is heavily overgrown and surrounded by bushes and trees. Of the four capstones of the chamber, only the western one remains. Two more capstones are still present, as well as seven supporting and one endstone.

The tomb lies under a tree group in the middle of a field and as said, pretty overgrown. So a visit in winter might be the better choice.

Drive from Westerwanna on the K5 (Feuerstättenweg) to the west and first passes the burial mound Gravenberg. After approx. 2.8 km, turn left into Süderheide and then turn right into Heideweg. After about 400 m you can see left hand about 150 m from the road in a field a smaller group of trees under which the Westerwanna 01 is located and 90 m to the left another group of trees, where the tombs Westerwanna 02, Westerwanna 03 and Westerwanna 04 are located.
