Lüdelsen 5 is a grand dolmen consisting of three pairs of supporting stones. The current state of preservation is moderate, one support and two capstones are missing, the mound is nearly eroded. The capstone is sunken and lies lengthwise on the chamber. A nearby stone could belong to a formerly existing enclosure. The rectangular chamber is northwest-southeast orientated, about 2.5 m long and 1.4 m wide. Six of the former eight support stones and one of probably two capstones are present. The remaining capstone measures about 2.2 m x 1.5 m x 0.8 m.

To get to the tomb Lüdelsen 5, go from the parking lot on a forest path, which is located opposite of Lüdelsen 3, back east towards Stöckheim. After about 30 meters you pass Lüdelsen 4 and after another 50 meters you reach the tomb.
