Bülitz is a grand dolmen consisting of five pairs of supporting stones and a trapezoidal enclosure. The current state of preservation is good, at least two capstone and most of the enclosure stones are missing, however the existing stones are still all upright. The enclosure is largely destroyed. It consists of only six stones and reaches a width of 9.4 m. In 1843, during the recording of Danneil, it was still in a very good condition. He described the enclosure as trapezoidal with a length of 26.7 m and a width between 8.8 m and 10.0 m. At that time the enclosure still had extra large guardian stones. The chamber is nordeast-southwest orientated and measures 5.7 m x 2.2 - 1.7 m. Twelve wall stones and one of the formerly presumably three capstones have been preserved.

On the northeast side of the tomb leans a large sandstone slab with a now washed-out inscription. This is, as in Kläden 6, a slab of the canon of Levetzow mentioned in 1893, who had bought this tomb in order to save it from destruction.

Drive from Bülitz towards Beesewege. About 800 meters behind Bülitz there is a group of houses on the left hand side. Just behind the last house leads a path to the grave 60 meters away.
