Diesdorf 2 is probably a passage grave consisting of seven pairs of supporting stones. The current state of preservation is bad, all capstones, several supporting stones and most of the enclosure stones are missing. From the rectangular or trapezoidal enclosure eight stones are preserved. The chamber is north-south orientated and about 9.3m long and 1.8-2.0m wide.

The tombs Diesdorf 2 and Diesdorf 3 are located south of Diesdorf. From the road leading through Diesdorf, turn first south into Sandstraße and after a few meters turn right into Bahnhofstraße. After the town sign follow the increasingly bad road to Lindhof. 600 meters after the track has made a left turn and at the end of a field on the left side, you can park the car. Take the path to the left (east) towards the forest and along the northern edge of the forest until a path branches off to the right. About 100 meters to the left (north) is the grave under a group of trees.
