"The Dutch Pyramids" Borger by Pijlmans
Borger Travel Guide: 38 reviews and 137 photos
Hunebeds, or dolmen, are tombs built over 5000 years ago by the people of the Funnelbeaker culture.
The boulders were brought to the Netherlands from Scandinavia, during the Ice Ages.
There are 54 hunebeds in the Netherlands. Because more than 10 of them are in the direct vicinity of Borger, Borger is also called the Hunebed Capital of the Netherlands.
The Hunebed Centre/Museum is built next to the largest hunebed (D27) of the Netherlands.
The environment of Borger offers a lot of nature to explore.
There is a construction in the forest, where you can walk between the tree tops. This is called the Boomkroonpad.
In the tip section are descriptions of several hikes you can do in the nature around Borger. One of them, called Bijvoetpad, takes you along most of the hunebeds.
