Harhoog (Dolmen / Quoit / Cromlech) — Fieldnotes

At the south-eastern end of Keitum, right on the edge of the tidal flats, lies the Harhoog, a giant bed with an extended dolmen or rectangular dolmen. The tomb was moved here in 1954 because it had to make way for the expansion of Sylt Airport.

To get to the grave, turn into the road Gurtstig at the roundabout in front of the entrance to Keitum. Follow this for about 900 m, then turn left into Christian-Peter-Hansen-Allee and then take the next road to the right (Melnwai). After approx. 70 m turn right into the street Am Tipkenhoog and follow this for 250 m to a large parking lot on the left. Park your car here and walk the remaining 300 m to Tipkenhoog and Harhoog.

Harhoog

The Harhoog is a giant bed from the Neolithic (New Stone Age). The mound of the giant bed was originally about 32 m long. In the middle of the mound enclosed by boulders was a rectangular dolmen as a stone chamber. (Picture below)

The Harhoog was originally located on the "Weenk" hill, which was built up in prehistoric times, southwest of the Keitum Church. The mound, which was about 1.8 m high at that time, only protruded about 60 cm over the hill. Part of the mound was excavated in 1926 because of the expanding gravel pit. Nearby was another giant bed, probably of the same type, which was removed in 1937. In 1954 the Harhoog was relocated to its current location due to the expansion of the airfield.
