The Waidhofen Megaliths are a group of prehistoric megalithic structures located in Waidhofen an der Thaya, Austria. The structures are believed to date back to the Neolithic period, approximately 5,000 to 7,000 years ago.

The Waidhofen Megaliths consist of several stone structures, including burial chambers, standing stones, and circles, that are believed to have served as religious or ceremonial sites for the people who built them. The structures are made up of large stones that were carefully arranged and fitted together using a technique called dry stone masonry.

One of the most significant structures in the Waidhofen Megaliths is the “Grosse Pyramide,” or Great Pyramid, which is a large burial mound that measures approximately 24 meters in diameter and 4 meters in height. The mound is surrounded by a circular stone structure that is believed to have served as a ceremonial site.

Other structures in the Waidhofen Megaliths include standing stones that are arranged in circular and rectangular patterns, as well as several dolmens, which are burial chambers made up of large stones.
