Dolmen D7 is a portal grave. The dolmen is located in the nature reserve De Strubben-Kniphorstbos east of the Borgweg near the village of Schipborg in the Dutch province of Drenthe.

Being located in the nature reserve De Strubben-Kniphorstbos, the site of dolmen D7 is fairly remote. The nature reserve is a former military training area that was transferred to Staatsbosbeheer (semi-public nature preservation organisation) in 2006.

The dolmen was built between 3400 and 3100 BCE, and is attributed to the funnel beaker culture.

The hunebed has four capstones (one of which is broken) and a gate.  It is 8.8 meters long and 3.1 meters wide.

The monument is at a high point and is visible from a great distance. People were also buried in the area in later phases of prehistoric times.
