The Runddysse of Neble is located on a hill with no preserved curbs, north of Boeslunde on the island of Zealand in Denmark . It is not to be confused with the Jordehøj from “Neble” at Stege on Møn . The Runddysse originated between 3500 and 2800 BC. BC as a megalithic system of the funnel beaker culture (TBK).

The east-west oriented dolmen is very eccentric in a 0.5 to 2.8 m high round hill with a diameter of 8.0 × 7.0 m. The chamber, which is slightly trapezoidal on the inside and measuring around 2.0 × 1.0 m, is open to the east. It is made up of two lateral supporting stones, an end stone, a coaxial door stone shifted to the north and the approximately 3.0 × 2.0 m capstone , completely without any intermediate masonry. The two preserved side passage stones extend the side front of the chamber in a straight line. The dolmen is located about 75 m east of the Gryderupvej (road).
