Dolmen Center Borger | Drenthe is known for its many dolmens that are spread out across the landscapes. In the Dutch language, we name them “Hunebedden”. Most of the time, the set of stones are placed upright and one flat stone is placed on top. A common aspect of such exemplar is that the entrance is at the south side. In all probability, the dolmens were used as burial chambers in the new stone age. The largest dolmen can be found in the village Borger (about 20 kilometres from here).
The Hunebedcentrum in Borger on the Drentse Hondsrug puts you on the trail to prehistoric times. To the time when the first farmers settled in Drenthe. These farmers built the impressive stone grave monuments, the remains of which can still be admired in the Drenthe landscape. There are still 54 of them and the largest is right next to the center.
