German passage mounds and dolmen by E. Sprockhoff

The book of E. Sprockhoff, 1966 has an overview a lot of the passage mounds and dolmen in the northern parts of Germany. Most of the mounds have some east-west aligment (see also more alignment info on Dutch and German passage mounds).
One of the described passage mounds is very interesting! It is a pity it does not exist anymore, but it was situated some 500 metres south from the centre of the village Utersum on the island Föhr near the Danish border.

This passage mound has two passages, one in north-east direction (some 7 m long) and one south-west direction (some 3.5 m long). The chamber is 2.5 x 1.5 m on the inside.

This could be very well a summer solstice sunrise and winter solstice sunset alignment.
