Kolkingehoog (aka Archsum 4) is a heavily destroyed passage grave. The stones of the grave become visible at low tide, it lies in the tidal flats and is therefore exposed to destruction by the North Sea. The position of the stones has changed a lot due to the constant interference of the sea, and so the original burial chamber can no longer be recognized.

To get to the tomb, turn shortly before leaving the village in the direction of Keitum from the Dorfstrasse in Archsum south into Uaster Reeg. Then turn right into Weesterstich and after 250 m turn left into Deichweg. Follow this road south-west for 1.6 km, there is a parking lot immediately in front of the Nössedeich (Deich means dike). Walk directly over the dike at the parking lot towards the tomb, which lies about 170 m south of the parking lot. A visit at low tide is recommended.
