"Dolmen" should also be accepted, in addition to "hunebed", they are synonyms. ("Dolmen" is included in "het Groene boekje".)

According to the Oxford Style Manual, a dolmen is a prehistoric tomb. Therefore, it should be dolmens because Drenthe does not have a dolmen. It has 53 of them. The rest of the Netherlands has one.

Is there a difference between beroemd and bekend? The answer gives both

Beroemd = famous Bekend = (well-)known
