Wanhöden

Chambered Tomb

Fieldnotes

Wanhöden is in a rather bad state of preservation. It has a northwest-southeast oriented burial chamber of 1.6 m width and length of about 7 m. From the chamber, only the northwestern end is preserved. The endstone and the two adjoining support stones of the long sides are still in situ with one capstone resting on them.

The tomb is located on the northwestern outskirts of Wanhöden directly on the edge of a dirt road. Drive from Wanhöden on the Wanhödener Strasse northwest towards Altenwalde. Shortly after passing the A27 motorway and just before the road turns right, continue straight ahead. After about 70 m, a dirt road turns left (southwest), here you park the car and walk about 125 m to the tomb, which is on the right of the path.
