Hestehave wood and the area around it contain a high concentration of prehistoric relics from the Neolithic Age (c. 3500 BC). The settlements would probably have been situated by the lake, while the burial mounds were set a little further back. Feel the history as you wander around the ancient prehistoric site, following the well kept, grassy paths through the woods, and picture lifs as it was back then. A track leads to Denmark's longest preserved long dolmen, measuring 168 m. Approximately 200 metres further along the track, a path leads westwards through the edge of the woods to an Iron Age burial site, which is not visible in the landscape. Here a slab cist in a mound, two lang dolmens and a round barrow can be found. A little further along the path are the remains of an execution site where criminals of the day met their end.
Information boards at the site explain about the excavations and burial customs.
There is parking a couple of hundres metres from the main road.
