Visbek Steingrab 2 submitted by Martin_L : The chamber still sits inside the well preserved remains of its barrow. Two out of probably originally 4* capstones of this chamber remained. (*Judging from the size of its barrow 2 capstones possibly are missing). View SE towards Visbeker Bräutigam long barrow. from my latest visit in January 2016. taken on Ilford Pan 400 (pushed to 1600) with 1970s no-name SLR, 50mm lens. (Vote or comment on this photo)

The site description states "Large cap stone sticking out of the remains of a tumulus."
Possibly all authors visited the site when drunken so they counted two capstones and also on all my visits there were two capstones. All in all I tend to agree with literature references ;)
The capstones obviously are in situ and resting on their orthostats so the condition is at least 4.

Hünengrab 934 is a chambered tomb and the northernmost tomb of this group. A little to the south is Hünengrab 935, which is on a small mound. Number 936 is the Visbeker Brautigam.

    934 is a passage grave. 935 (this one) is a chambered tomb of unknown type as the chamber is almost completely hidden inside the remains of its covering barrow.
