Burial mound at Rude Beach

Fairly well hidden in the vacation area of Rude Strand is a grave mound with stone coffins dating back to the early neolithic period around 3.500 BC. Excavations and findings from the mound have shed new light on the complicated and variety of burial tradition in the neolithic period, which is otherwise dominated by burials in cairns and gallery graves. A visit to the stone coffins in Rude can easily be combined with a trip to Norsminde, in order to get a better impression of the bay area as the inhabitants saw it in the neolithic period.

The directions to the grave mound is well signed, and the mound itself has an information board. Free public access to the mounds. Please park on the side road adjoining Lyngbakkevej.
