D25 is the third member of the trio with D23 and D24. Actually it is the first because it is larger and more intact than the other two. It has four lintels lying neatly on eight uprights and two keystones. As is often found with other hunebeds, the uprights hardly stick out above the ground. The relatively accessible sandy path to the hunebeds is clearly marked from Bronneger by one of the original signposts. There used to be another one on the other side, along the old cobbled road from Borger to Drouwen, but that has disappeared. D21 and 22 stand a few hundred metres further to the west alongside the same sandy path.
Location of D25, Drouwen
Visit of Professor van Giffen in 1918
Van Giffen found this hunebed in “a very good condition” and complete, with 4 lintels, 8 uprights and 2 keystones. There were no traces of a covering mound. One remarkable finding was that the first and second lintels were both part of one larger stone. D24 was purchased by the State in 1871.
