Dansk: Harhoog er en cirka 4500 år gammel dysse vest for landsbyen Kejtum på den nordfrisiske ø Sild. Dysen er placeret ved siden af vadet og består af et kravkammer og et stenkreds. Dysen blev udgravet i 1925, men blev flyttet fra sin originale placering i 1954 på grund af lufthavnens opførelse.
Deutsch: Das Megalithgrab Harhoog in Keitum auf Sylt stammt aus der Kupfersteinzeit und wurde um 3.000 v. Chr. gebaut. Es befand sich ursprünglich in der "Weenk" genannten Anhöhe östlich des Wäldchens zwischen Keitum und Tinnum. Es wurde erstmals bei der Ausbeutung einer großen Sandgrube für den Bau des Hindenburgdammes 1925 freigelegt und nach weiteren Sandentnahmen für den Bau des Nössekoogdeiches 1936 wissenschaftlich untersucht. Die Steinkammer des Riesenbettes musste im Juni 1954 verlegt werden, weil das Gelände für die Erweiterung des Sylter Flughafens abgetragen wurde.
