Lenzen Steintanz

Stone Circle in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

Steintanz von Lenzen

(Steintanz = stonedance)

This so-called steintanz was build from nine 1m - 2m boulders, set up in a circle. Similar settings are near Boitin and Bellin, in Poland and in South-Scandinavia. The stones sit deep in the ground, above earth is about 0.5 to 1.5m.

There is a lot of reasoning about this stone circles, it has been found that they are set upon urn graves from the iron age.
