Gross Roennau Steingrab

Burial Chamber (Dolmen) in Schleswig-Holstein.

Gross Roennau has a nice big informational map in the 'center' of the village, but there is no info about this fascinating Dolmen at all.

As there is almost no information on this tomb on the web, I took a closer look at Gross Roennau in Google Earth. I searched for little spots, that might be a stone tomb.

With 4 different coordinates in my GPS I was on my way. After 2 tries, I crossed the village once again, and saw a lady working in her garden and asked her.

Her first somewhat angry face lightened up and yes, she told me the way. But she said, most likely I cannot access it because it is hidden in a corn field.

I followed her instructions, and found a corn field. Well, at least now i knew where it should be, and prepared for third attempt later this year.

Back to car, a short look arround, suddenly i discovered a strange shape through the bushes, on a field nearby.

And there it was, right there in the middle of a field, standing there like a monument...
