mirekulous:

The Goseck Henge in Germany is an early Neolithic Henge-structure with entrances orientated to the rising and setting winter solstice sun. Dating back from 5,000 BC, the Goseck ‘Henge’ is considered the earliest solar observatory in the world.

It lies on the same latitude as Stonehenge, at just over 1′ minute of longitude further north which is approx 1000 meters.
