Megalithic tomb near Drebenstedt
Megalithic tomb near Drebenstedt

This is the largest tomb of the Altmark region. It is 43.8 m x 6-7.5m in size. 58 stones of the mound and 13 of 16 wall stones plus 4 capstones remained. There are remarkable cups at the top upon the large corner stone at the west end. Remarkable also are graves in two of the fencing stones.

Those graves were used for a whole kin. Some walls have more than 100 m in length and contain two or more stone chambers. They were in use for long periods. The walls were bordered with "smaller" erratic blocks, that now are often missing.
