The „Straße der Megalithkultur“ in northwest Germany

Place Holder Sweden

The origin of the Association for “Megalithic Routes” is the “Straße der Megalithkultur”, a tourist holiday route in northwest Germany. It was launched in 2006 by a group of tourism experts, archaeologists, astronomers, and historians with the aim of introducing the 5000 year-old “Hünengräber” (megalithic graves) as a new trademark of the regions Osnabrücker Land, Emsland, and Wildeshausen Geest. In each of these regions there are centres with an accumulation of megalithic burials.
