It is not the impression "Danish village church" you get when you see Øster Ulslev Church for the first time. What you first notice is the octagonal spire in the middle of the roof. As far as is known, it was set up in 1694. The church is considered one of Lolland's elders, although one has no definite baptismal certificate for the church, so it is known that it was built in the Romanesque period from 1150 to 1300.

Danmark Church

The first written record of church in Danmark locality date back to the year 1291. Close to the church are several stones with a Christian text and cross inscribed. The oldest parts of the present red-brick church are from the 1300s. In the late 1400s the church was enlarged to the appearance it has today. The church has been modified both internally and externally several times, among other things after the fires in 1699 and 1889. There are lot of well-preserved mural paintings in the walls.
