These are two of those three tombs.

In the background, the Baltic Sea.

Behind those trees on the right is the campsite.

sidenote: if you go here, and you feel hungry, go to the little retaurant there called TONI. order the 'Sauerfleisch mit Bratkartoffeln'. you will never forget those potatoes. :-)

Totenhaus Tesperhude

Just outside the village Tesperhude, near the river Elbe, a small muddy pathway leads to some of the the most unusual tombs that i have seen. In fact, there is nothing to compare in northern Germany.

First of, the 'House of the Dead', the 'Totenhaus' that gave this place the groussom name. It is apprx. 3200 years old. A woman and her 2 year old child have been burried here. Obviously they had build a house arround the two, standing on 12 wooden poles. The place was covered with stones, size 7 by 7 metres. This house has been burned down, and now just the stones are left.

The second tomb is a big bathtube like construction of stones, and the third has the shape of a horseshoe.

Dellbruecker Kammer

Burial Chamber (Dolmen) in Schleswig-Holstein

Not far from the street Albersdorf to Meldorf, near a farm in the village of Dellbrueck.

A mighty Dolmen with two capstones.

Dated 2700 BCE

The most important megalithic stone of Schleswig-Holstein.

This stone is endangered by:

rain containing too much acid

air polution

people who use the cup marks as an ashtray

people who throw stones on top of it

people who walk arround on it

people who fill the cup marks with stuff

people who put candles into the cup marks

people who try to 'enhance' the effect of the carvings

by painting, chalking or scratching.

They should bring this stone to the museum in Schleswig.

Reinfeld Steingrab

This is the restored Dolmen of Reinfeld. The tomb consists of 10 standing stones and 3 capstones.

Located on a hill in a forest (Neuer Hau) near Reinfeld. Parking is possible in the 'Schuhwiese' [53.84131N 10.48452E]. From there is a beautiful footpath to the tomb. At last you walk up the stairs to the hilltop
