In the Pastitzer Forst near Putbus, many ground monuments have been preserved to this day, including megalithic tombs, tumuli, castle ramparts, but also bowl and grooved stones. Among the graves from the Neolithic period, there is a well-known megalithic tomb (site 2 in the Pastitzer Forst) on the railroad line from Bergen to Putbus. Despite traces of the stone-beating columns, the mound bed with its surrounding stones is still well preserved here. Originally the grave - a large dolmen with a windbreak from the time around 3000 BC - had a burial chamber with four capstones, but two of them are missing and one has slipped into the chamber. Also at the supposed megalithic tomb, site 51, in Pastitzer Forst, the surrounding stones have been preserved for the most part. But the burial chamber is not visible above ground in the flat elongated mound so far. It is therefore questionable whether this structure is actually a megalithic tomb.
