|Description ||View from below capstone C3. Beautifully situated remains of a chambered tomb near Osnabrück in Lower Saxony. According to Jacob-Friesen, Sprockhoff and Schwieger  the chamber originally had 4 capstones , 4 orthostat on each longside and a size of appr. 8m x 3m (clear 6m x 2m).|
One orthostat of the southern longside is missing. One capstone is fallen into the chamber and partly overgrown now. Another one is slightly out of place, but still resting on its uprights. The westernmost and the easternmost capstones are missing. Sprockhoff identified a stone in the eastern end of the chamber as a fragment of the latter.
