Long Barrow in Schleswig-Holstein.
If you drive the A1 Autobahn to the island Fehmarn,
you cross the Baltic Sea on the Fehmarnsund bridge.
The bridge starts at the most remote tip of the
Wagrien peninsula, and here, just a little to the north,
one of the biggest Long Barrows of Germany was build.
With 100m length it is almost the same size like the
'Visbeker Braut' or the 'West Kennett Long Barrow'.
Just there is no visible chamber,
and also most of the remaining stonerows are overgrown.
What is so unique about this barrow is the
breathtaking beauty of the location and the
Standing at the north end of the barrow
(it ws build in north south direction)
near the mighty 2,5m 'Waechterstein', you will
have a perfect view out to the Baltic Sea and
over the 'Sund' to Fehmarn.
So, you must have had a perfect view on the barrow
from all the ships that sailed the route through the 'Sund'.
It must have been a very impressive sight
when the stones still stood there in good order.
