The stone cist of Plömnitz is a 2.30 meter long cist made of large sandstone slabs. The two long sides with two or one stone and one narrow side stand upright, next to the stone cist lies one stone of the other narrow side. A capstone is not present. The stone cist was excavated in Plömnitz at the beginning of the 20th century and moved here.

During my visit the stone cist was heavily overgrown with ivy. I ran past the cist several times without noticing it. So you just have to believe that the cist is pictured on the images. In the internet I found the following picture showing the cist without the ivy (Steinkiste Plömnitz @

Entering the castle through the main entrance leads directly to the stone cist, which is in flowering bed, 70 m left of the entrance near a cafe. Unfortunately, there is no sign and no board with explanations to the grave.
