Kardyb is Denmark's longest long barrow (185 m).

The mound did not get it's final length at one time. New burial chambers were added next to the mound in continuation of the earlier ones. Everytime, the mound was extended past the new chambers. Large fieldstones are often seen placed around the edge of the mounds. They are remains of a barrow circle.
