Lamstedt is a very well-preserved passage grave with a trapezoidal layout consisting of 8 support stones and one endstone on the broad end side (the other is missing). On the support stones are still three huge capstones, the fourth lies broken in the southeastern chamber area. Clearly recognizable is an inward inclination of the supporting stones of the approximately four-meter-long chamber. A gap in the middle of the southwestern long side marks the entrance.

The passage grave is located in a clearing in the forest of Westerberg north of Lamstedt. You drive on the K21 from Lamstedt in the direction of Wingst. Approximately 500 m after passing the Steingarten Westerberg, a sign shows the way to the right in the forest and you can park your car. Follow the forest path straight on and after about 150 m you will pass a nice burial mound on the right, before turning right onto the forest path after approx. 450 m (from the road). After another 60 meters the tomb is on the right side in a small clearing.
