Karlsminde Langbett

A completely restored Long Barrow in Schleswig-Holstein.

Maybe 'the' Long Barrow of Northern Germany, because you will find pictures of it in almost every article about stone age or stone tombs.

Located near the Baltic Sea, on the peninsula of Schwansen. A very nice area, and worth the travel.

It was restored between 1976 and 1978. Check the Official Sign closely, there is a nice 'before and after' sketch. The three tombs in the barrow are almost original, and the surrounding stones have been put back to position.

Some data: Length: 60m, Width: 5,5m, Height: 2,5m. Dated 2500 BCE
