Rehbergholz 1

Long Barrow


In the Rehbergholz, a forest south of Satrup, you will find 3 long barrows along a 4 km long circular path. While only a few round stones and the mound can still be seen of the other two tombs, the Pinnesgrab to the east is by far best preserved and is worth a visit in itself.

It is a rectangular giants bed facing east-west with two burial chambers. The dimensions of the enclosure are 33 × 6.5 m. In the eastern part of the long barrow there is an obliquely transverse extended dolmen, the entrance to which was probably in the south. There is only a pair of support stones and a slipped capstone. Remains of a second chamber can be found in the western part of the enclosure. More then 40 kerbstones are still visible.

Drive south on the L22 from Satrup towards Uelsby. About 2.5 km behind Satrup the road enters the forest and there is a parking lot on the left. Park here and walk along the forest path straight on (eastward) for 1.2 km. You reach a T-crossing turn left here and walk northward. After about 200 m you pass Rehbergholz 3. 100 m behind Rehbergholz 3 turn right and walk north-eastward. After 750 m you'll reach Pinnesgrab, which lies right of the track in the woods. From the parking lot it about 2.5 km in total.

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.
