Long Barrow with Chambered Tomb in Saxony-Anhalt

A 32 x 7m rectangle shaped Long Barrow. 32 of the kerbstones are still there, most of them fallen and out of place. In the east, there are two pretty big flat stones; most likely former capstones of the tomb. One of them has about 27 cupmarks. The tomb in the middle of the barrow has been set up with five orthostats on each long side. Chambers size 6 x 1.8 x 1.5m. One original capstone has sunken down, fragments of another one still remain in the chamber.

Nowadays most of the kerbstones are overgrown but the chamber is beautiful to see.

The third of three tombs between Bretsch and Drüsedau. This tomb is located some distance away from the other two graves.
