When you come to drive you'll see soon the sign 'dolmen' on the end.
Because of the peculiar and funny situation, right next to the sidewall of a small farmhouse, this pair of hunebeds form one of the most remarkable in Drenthe. The two are in-line, only 5 meters between them. In spite of their neclected state, most of the capstones have fallen off, they are just beautiful, not in the least by the impressive branches of the oaktrees covering them. Together they have 13 capstones (some of them are really big!) and 28 sidestones.
Hunebeds come in pairs more often. D17/18, D19/20 and D28/29 are other examples.
Dolmen at D3 Midlaren
When you go looking for this dolmen you arrive at a farm. The old board with 'dolmen' there on treason location. Take a dirt road ends you come to an old farmhouse where dolmen D3 and D4 are. First you walk past dolmen D4 and D3 is dolmen at the end of the grounds. We're going to talk about now.
Dolmen D3 is quite large and very complete. Most stones that form this dolmen are really huge. It could be if you so call comes almost one of the largest dolmens. Yet all very messy lies with, especially since a lot of cover stones are located in the basement of the dolmen. Yet this makes sure everything is authentic about, namely this dolmen has had no renovation.
Both units are very large and both have nearly all currently cover stones. D3 is when you come to walk in the back, next to a huge old tree. This hunebed is still also never been restored on the repair of some after covering stones, in order to prevent that these would break.
Dolmen D4 in Midlaren
As you may just have been read by dolmen dolmen D4 D3 is next to the large dolmen D3. They are both next to an old dilapidated farm after you've finished a path. The site houses large old trees that make the picture complete it.
As D3 is this specimen very large and very messy. A few of the vast covering stones lie in the crypt. This is clearly a few dolmens, together they are also often called "Hunen Borg. Yet instances are both very worthwhile to visit. They belong to the larger dolmens and give a good idea how the megaliths go there have lain there for centuries.

When you reach the fork is heaps, turn left and then you will necessarily be the sign dolmen.
The numbering of the hunebeds (D1, D2, etc.) was made by the late professor Van Giffen, an archaeologist of the Groningen University, who dedicated his career to make a comprehensive survey of all prehistoric monuments in the northern part of the country. The "D" stands for Drenthe and he numbered the hunebeds from north to south. The most northern, D1, is of medium size and situated near the village of Roden. It lies in an attractive scenery, on the slope of a small sand hill. It is pretty complete: all 6 capstones and 14 side- and endstones are present. Even the entrance with 4 passage sidestones and one capstone is complete.
At the time of the survey in 1918, D1 was a ruin. All capstones were fallen off and one capstone was broken into 5 pieces. Van Giffen cemented them together, erected tumbled sidestones and lifted the capstones onto their original position again. In March 1997 D1 was severely damaged by arson. The second capstone was split into pieces by the fire. At first sight the damage seemed to be unrepairable but after an investigation by experts an attempt to glue the parts together again was successful.
Dolmen at D1 Steenbergen
This fairly complete dolmen is on a hill next to a large dirt road. He is very accessible and is also next to a hiking trail. This is very unfortunate because it will quickly climb an object.
The dolmen is the most northerly in the province of Drenthe and therefore starts here census D1, also Drenthe1. The first thing you notice when you get to walk this is a very complete dolmen.
There are no bush stone longer present, but still all six slabs. The port is very visible as you can see in the photo.
What is also striking for this dolmen is that he is on a hill. It is a magnificent specimen. The colors of the stones combined with the surroundings are very beautiful. Definitely worth a visit.

A cute little hunebed on its own quiet ground but close to the busy road to Zuidlaren and the railroad Assen - Groningen.

He found an abundance of artifacts (potsherds, axes, beads, etc.), exhibited now in the Drents Museum in Assen.
Dolmen D6 Tynaarlo
there completely on the edge of a neighborhood located at D6. What time striking about this dolmen is that it's pretty close. All the stones are there close together and the dolmen has three slabs. He stands in the middle of a field on the edge of a street near the railway line. No wreath stones are no longer present and the input is also difficult to identify. Yet this small but striking megalith does have a beautiful appearance.
It is the only dolmen in the vicinity, but there seems to 4 dolmens in the neighborhood to have stood. It is definitely worth visiting dolmen d6.
