Dolmens

Dolmens are the oldest monuments of the Netherlands. In the province of Drenthe, you will find no fewer than 52 dolmens within a 30-kilometre radius, concealed by pristine natural surroundings and shrouded in mystery. The people of the Funnelbeaker culture built the dolmens from the erratic boulders that were deposited in Drenthe during the Ice Age, the dolmens served as tombstones.
