Large Sloopsteene
Large Sloopsteene

22 wall stones carry some large, nowadays partly slipped cupstones and build the chamber of 23.5m x 7.5m inner dimensions. It is the best-preserved prehistoric grave in Westfalen. Some of the outer stones did also remain.

Those graves were used for a whole kin. There are really huge stones, and may even have a hole in one of it's bounding stones. They were surrounded by smaller megaliths in circles or ovals. Unfortunately most of the smaller stones are missing.
