taken from wikipedia:

The six tombs are located in a forest near Tangeln and Mellin. After older investigations by Johann Friedrich Danneil (1843), Eduard Krause and Otto Schoetensack (1893) as well as Wilhelm Blasius (1904) there were originally at least two more tombs (tomb 2 and tomb 3). In a new recording in 2003 of these, however, no traces were found. According to an inhabitant, these seemed to have been destroyed by the new forest owners in mid-1990s. In return, however, another tomb was discovered in 2006, which had not been mentioned by the researchers of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Tangeln 2/3? (Chambered Tomb) — Fieldnotes

About 30 meters further southwest of Tangeln 4 lie some stones, which could be the remains of a megalithic tomb that may have been mentioned e.g. by Krause / Schoetensack. Above ground 4 stones are still preserved, which however no longer show any structure of the tomb. It might be the remains of Tangel 2 or 3, since there were probably in this area.

Park at the (private) entranceway of Schloss Neumühle. A forest road starts left of the access. Follow the road slightly uphill for about 500 m. At the highest point, a path turns southwest sharply to the right. Follow this path, after 400 m the tomb lies about 40 m in the forest.

Tangeln 4 (Chambered Tomb) — Fieldnotes

The tomb is badly damaged and can no longer be assigned to a type. The still recognizable, eroded burial mound has a diameter of 14 meters and is about 0.5 m high. Two support stones and one capstone are still present. An enclosure is not recognizable.

Tangeln 5 (Chambered Tomb) — Fieldnotes

Tangeln 5 is a grand dolmen consisting of seven (?) pairs of supporting stones and likely an enclosure. The current state of preservation is moderate. All capstones are sunken, the wall stones tilted, pushed apart and therefore not all assignable. Enclosure stones are scattered. An enclosure was probably present, but the form can not be reconstructed. A maximum of four or five enclosure stones are preserved. The northwest-southeast oriented burial chamber was probably rectangular and measures 11.5 meters long and 4 meters wide. About 16 wall stones and at least five capstones are preserved.

Park at the (private) entranceway of Schloss Neumühle. A forest road starts left of the access. Follow the road slightly uphill for about 500 m. At the highest point, a path turns southwest sharply to the right. Follow this path, after 400 m you pass Tangeln 4 and 150 m further on there is the turnoff to the tomb.
