Insanely exciting half-timbered church. Not every day you see it. If you like to "lure" history, then the cemetery with its many special names is worth a look. Take a walk in the city. You will not be run down - not even tired! Exciting Lolland location!

En smuk bindingsværkskirke, som der ikke findes mange af. Den er bygget omkring år 1200. Tårnet blev formentlig bygget i 1700-tallet. Skørringe kirke ligger meget idyllisk i den lille landsby Vester Skørringe omgivet af løvtræer og indrammet af et hvidt hegn

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.
