It is a heavily destroyed megalithic tomb. There are 9 stones left, probably a capstone and 8 supporting stones. The expansion of the chamber is no longer recognizable. All stones are more or less displaced. In one of the stones there is a depression in which, according to a legend, the water should never dry out.

From Erxleben take the K1148 northwest to Hörsingen. After about 4km you get to a roundabout. Take the third exit onto the K1146 towards Bartensleben (eastwards). After about 1.1km, just before the road forks (left towards Alleringersleben and Ostingersleben, straight on towards Klein Bartensleben), a forest path branches off to the right, where you can park your car. There is also on a tree a weathered sign on the grave. Follow this path for about 70 meters, the tomb is then left in the forest.
