Goosefeld 4

Dolmen / Quoit / Cromlech


Wow, this must be one of the most beautiful dolmens in northern Germany. Shortly after Lehmsiek towards Eckernförde this prototype of a dolmen is on the right hand side on a hill overlooking all of the surrounding scenery. You can't place a dolmen nicer, the view in every direction is fantastic.

The tomb has an east-west-facing burial chamber, which is the rest of an extended or a large dolmen. There are still two support stones on the north and one on the south long side. A capstone 2.5 m long, 2.2 m wide and 1.1 m thick rests on them.

Goosefeld 4 lies in a field just beside the road from Lehmsiek to Eckernförde, when you come from Eckernförde it is on the left side just before you reach Lehmsiek. Parking is a bit tricky and be aware that the electric fence might be in operation, at least it was during my visit.

This is a must see site in the area around Eckernförde, highly recommended!

P.S.: The image stabilizer on my camera didn't work properly on this tour, so some of my images are unfortunately out of focus. Sorry for that.
