Strukkamp Steingrab (Fehmarn)

Burial Chamber (Dolmen) in Schleswig-Holstein.

On the island Fehmarn, Baltic Sea.

Very close to the beach, a surfers paradise, now in a little forest, there is one of the few remaining tombs on Fehmarn Island.

Not much place there, you can just walk arround it, so i couldnt get a nice total shot.

One of the uprights is missing.

Trivia: In the 19th century this dolmen was used as a landmark for passing ships. There was no forest then, so they painted a big white cross on the capstone.

This may have saved the dolmen from destruction.
