Døllefjelde, village 9 km southeast of Sakskøbing. St. Kjeld's Chapel was built in 1266 as a small pilgrimage church near St. Kjeld's Source (a well is located northeast of the rectory). The popularity of the Holy Source led to the expansion of the chapel in the 1300s and 1400s, and it now appears as Døllefjelde Church. Every year, a large spring market was held on Mikkelsdag, 29 September. Since 1980, the tradition has been revived with the Døllefjelde-Musse Creamer market during the big-day holiday.

A beautiful whitewashed village church built around 1100. Døllefjelde church choir is the ship in an older Romanesque church. The original church has been rather small and thus not turned on. In the 14th century, the new ship was built and a little later the tower. Ifm. a restoration in 1694, a sacristy on the south side of the choir was broken down. The same applies to the porch, which was previously located at the ship's north side. In the course of the years, it was repeatedly complained of its fallacy, and in 1855—56 it was demolished, while the entrance of the church was abandoned to the tower, where there had so far been a material house. After belonging to the county of Knuthenborg since 1714, the church passed to self-ownership on July 1, 1911

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.
