Hüven Nord - "Volbers Hünensteine"



The "Großsteingrab" in Lahden is 25-meter long and 7-meter wide. The chamber counted 15 capstones, only 10 remains. Two small circles of kerbstones encircle the grave.
Situated near the road Hüven-Lähden.




"Im großen Sand" is a nice "Hünegrab", situated on a very quit place deep in a forest southwest of Herßum (direction). This is the ideal place to overnight (on the sly) near a tomb.... It is possible to follow the forestall road to the grave by car.

Not one of the capstones remains in original position. Only 10 kerbstones of an oval ring remain. Many stones where used as building material.
