Katelbogen Steingrab (Hünenkellerbarg)

Long Barrow with Chambered Tomb in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania (Passage grave with rectangular enclosure)

A very beautiful barrow, situated on a hill close to a small street between Qualitz and Katelbogen. There is a small footpath up to the tomb, so a visit is even possible in growing season.

There are not so much remains of the enclosure, there is an intact line of stones on the south-east long side; the other side is not complete. Barrows size apprx. 23 x 12m. Inside the enclosure, a well preserved chamber with five uprights on each of the long sides. The chamber is deeply embedded into the ground. There are 4 mighty capstones, so just one is missing. Size of the biggest capstone 3.1 x 2.3 x 1.2m. There are a few cupmarks on one of the middle stones.

The barrow has been examined and restored in 1966.
