First reported 1788 Hottingerkaart (H.J. Versfelt, De Hottinger-atlas van Noord- en Oost-Nederland. 1773-1794)
Spanning a rolling dune hill in the pine forest on the edge of Emmen, the A-list hunebed D45 is large and impressive. The largest capstone reputedly bears the mark of Ludwig Napoleon's horse's hoof when the emperor mounted the monument in the mid-19th century - although others see the marks as a handprint of one of its giant builders.
