In Search of the Tomb Builders
The Hunebed Centre
A hunebed is a prehistoric tomb built around 5,000 years ago, and the largest tomb in the Netherlands stands next to the Hunebed Centre in Borger. The Hunebed Centre tells the amazing story of the people who built these tombs. Come and learn more about their lives and then set off on a quest to discover for yourself some of the 54 hunebeds still to be found in this area.
The Hondsrug Region and the Prehistoric Park
The village of Borger stands on a ridge known as the Hondsrug, now home to the ‘Hondsrug UNESCO Geopark’. In the Geopark Gateway at the Hunebed Centre you will find a graphic visual exhibition which explains how the Hondsrug landscape was created and tells the 150,000 year history of this unique area. Outside you can stroll through the largest Boulder Garden in the Netherlands or follow the Discovery Path in the open-air Prehistoric Park.
