Gramtitz 1 (Dolmen / Quoit / Cromlech) — Fieldnotes

Gramtitz 1 (aka Starrvitz) is a trapezoidal long barrow oriented roughly east-west. The mound has a length of 40 metres and tapers towards the east. Only a few stones are visible from enclosure, others are obviously missing, some more may still be hidden in the mound. In the western part of the mound there is probably still the completely preserved chamber, which lies transversal to the enclosure.

The grave is located about 500 metres behind Gramtitz on the left side of the road in a hill overgrown with bushes and trees directly in front of a field path branching off to the south and cannot be missed. Unfortunately, the site is quite overgrown, so that details can only be guessed at. Therefore, a visit may be more worthwhile in autumn/winter.

Sassnitz-Waldhalle 2 (Dolmen / Quoit / Cromlech) — Fieldnotes

Sassnitz-Waldhalle 2 is a grand dolmen. Only three pairs of supporting stone and the end stone in the east are preserved. The entrance was probably to the west. The chamber measures about 3.50 x 1.70 metres. There are some stones scatterd around the tomb, which are probably remains of capstones.

The tomb is located northeast of Sassnitz in the middle of the Jasmund National Park. To get to the tomb start at the UNESCO World Heritage Forum Waldhalle. Take the road to the west until you came to a three way crossing. Take the left track which after 250 m first leads in a wide curve around a hill. Sassnitz-Waldhalle 2 is on the top of this hill and is hidden under dense ferns.
