Loose is an beautiful extended dolmen and is located about 1.6 km north-east of Loose in the Rendsburg-Eckernförde district in Schleswig-Holstein, 50 m west of the B203 in a field.

The north-west-south-east oriented chamber is well preserved. All stones are present and are in situ. The long sides consist of two pairs of supporting stones. At the north-western end there is a end stone, opposite a low entry stone. The chamber is covered with a capstone, its dimensions are 2.4 × 1.9 × 1.3 m. The stones are made of red granite.

Parking on the B203 could be difficult, therefore I recommend to park at the parking lot Loose (approx. 1 km northeast of Loose) and walking further north on the footpath next to the B203. On the left side you should already see the dolmen, access to the field is possible 350 m on the left behind the parking lot.

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.
