Lonely Planet review

Hunebedden , which predate Stonehenge, are prehistoric burial chambers constructed with huge grey stones, some of which weigh up to 25,000kg. A total of 54 of these impressive groupings of sombre grey stones can be seen in Drenthe and Groningen.

The impressive Hunebedden Centrum in Borger, a little town 17km northwest of Emmen, is the centre for the hunebedden, and the logical place to start a tour. The centre has many displays relating to the stones as well as excavated artefacts, and the largest hunebed is located just outside its doors.
