A very beautiful stone church with an extremely well-kept cemetery. But that can be said of all cemeteries in Denmark. The gravesites of former enemies are also very well maintained. Look at the pictures, they speak for themselves. And if you like visiting churches, you shouldn't miss this one. The most accurate sundial in Denmark is nearby

Good thing there are some who are working to preserve a bit of the past. Horse stables for use during church hours. ?

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
