Steden Grab 2
Steden Grab 2 submitted by Martin_L : The lateral passage, looking north. Steden Tomb 2, Sprockhoff No. 628 [April 2008] (Vote or comment on this photo)
This tomb is part of the "Vorgeschichtspfad" (Prehistory Path) which is very pleasant for a woodland outing with children.

The signposted route also includes several burial mounds (of the "boring green bump" variety), a picnic area with replicas explaining the structure of burial circles and mounds, and a stone with cup-like depressions (of a type found at several locations throughout N. Germany).

The parking space for the start of the walk is located at N53.24393 E8.65599.
