Klemstrup Skov Dysser (Dolmens)


Nimtofte, Denmark (DK)
Located in Djursland, Denmark in Klemstrup forest are the remains of two Neolithic dolmens. Both dolmens lie close to the road on each side.

The northern dolmen is surrounded by 28 edge stones. The burial chamber is still clearly visible but its capstone has been removed. The damaged capstone can, however, be seen not too far from the actual chamber. The chamber lies slightly hidden from the road between some trees. The mound that surrounded the chamber has been destroyed.

The southern dolmen (this one) has an information board with information about both dolmens. This dolmen has 24 edge stones surrounding it and the mound on this one has also been destroyed. The corridor and burial chamber are still visible, however, the capstones creating the roof have been lost. The chamber is also visible, but the capstone has been lost.
