About 1.2 kilometers south of Schadewohl are 3 megalithic tombs on a line running northwest to southeast. Turn behind Schadewohl into the small road running southwest, which turns into a more or less bumpy dirt road after about 200m. First you pass a graveyard on the right side, then after about 550m you reach a rectangular concrete silo.

I parked my car here and walk along the field track for about 700m to Schadewohl 1, which lies in a group of trees and bushes on the right of the track.

Schadewohl 2 lies about 400m southeast of Schadewohl 1 in the field left of the track, Schadewohl 3 lies 315m southeast of Schadewohl 2. Look for a small crosswalk that crosses the small trench in the dip between both tombs.

As Schadewohl 2 and Schadewohl 3 are located in a large field, you should visit the tomb only after harvesting or before sowing.

Schadewohl 3 (Chambered Tomb) — Fieldnotes

Schadewohl 3 is a grand dolmen consisting of three pairs of supporting stones. An enclosure probably never existed. The chamber is northwest-southeast orientated and about 4.7m long and 2m wide. The current state of preservation is moderate, one of the capstones is missing, one lies in the chamber, another one in front of the tomb.

Schadewohl 2 (Chambered Tomb) — Fieldnotes

Schadewohl 2 is a grand dolmen consisting of four pairs of supporting stones. An enclosure is not recognizable or never existed. The capstones contain cup marks, but already show cracks and may break soon. The chamber is northwest-southeast orientated and about 5.7m long and 1.5m wide.

The current state of preservation is (still) good. But trees and bushes afflict the tomb, so it might be nearly invisible during summer time.

Schadewohl 1 (Chambered Tomb) — Fieldnotes

Schadewohl 1 is a grand dolmen consisting of six pairs of supporting stones. All enclosing stones are missing, some supporting stones are missing others are fallen down. One capstone is missing, one is fell into the chamber, which is northwest-southeast orientated and about 8m long and 1.4-2.0m wide.

The current state of preservation is moderate, but the whole area is in a bad condition (waste dump and gathered stones from the surrounding fields).
