Submitted by Jürgen Tenckhoff on Thu, 03/31/2022 - 12:17

From Oldenburg to Osnabrück, the route of megalithic culture in Emsland runs around 330 kilometers to 33 well-preserved Neolithic burial sites that were built around 5000 years ago. And detours from this route lead to other "dole graves" or at least to places where special rock formations serve as an indication of buildings from the Early Stone Age.

This article shows photos of the following megalithic tombs:
