D28 lies with its twin D29 in a large wooded grove just off the road from Borger to Buinen. In spite of nearby traffic, it is surprisingly peaceful and atmospheric and, like many other hunebedden, is a frequent spot for meeting and contemplation for the locals. Borger folk legend has it that the hunebed builders threw each stones to each other from one place to another over the heath, first from Buinen to Borger, and from there to Drouwen. Curiously, this reflects what archaeologists have learned about the cultural dispersion pattern.
