The megalithic tombs at Goosefeld are four graves of the Neolithic Funnel Beaker Culture near Goosefeld in the district Rendsburg-Eckernförde in Schleswig-Holstein. They have the Sprockhoff numbers 75–78.

The tombs do not form a coherent group. Goosefeld 1 lies west of Goosefeld in a meadow. Goosefeld 2 lies east of the village and 980 m east-southeast of Goosefeld 1 in a field. Goosefeld 3 lies 1 km south-southwest of Goosefeld 2 and west of Lehmsiek. Goosefeld 4 is 760 m southeast of Goosefeld 2 and north of Lehmsiek.

Groß Wittensee is located 770 m south-west of Goosefeld 3.

Goosefeld 4 (Dolmen / Quoit / Cromlech) — Fieldnotes

Wow, this must be one of the most beautiful dolmens in northern Germany. Shortly after Lehmsiek towards Eckernförde this prototype of a dolmen is on the right hand side on a hill overlooking all of the surrounding scenery. You can't place a dolmen nicer, the view in every direction is fantastic.

The tomb has an east-west-facing burial chamber, which is the rest of an extended or a large dolmen. There are still two support stones on the north and one on the south long side. A capstone 2.5 m long, 2.2 m wide and 1.1 m thick rests on them.

Goosefeld 4 lies in a field just beside the road from Lehmsiek to Eckernförde, when you come from Eckernförde it is on the left side just before you reach Lehmsiek. Parking is a bit tricky and be aware that the electric fence might be in operation, at least it was during my visit.

This is a must see site in the area around Eckernförde, highly recommended!

P.S.: The image stabilizer on my camera didn't work properly on this tour, so some of my images are unfortunately out of focus. Sorry for that.
