The church in Vallensbæk Village dates back to the 1100s, built in the years 1150-1200. It is a typical village church, which originally consisted of cows and ships in Romanesque style built in chalk quarters. The tower has only come to later, in the 16th century, and is listed in the bedoque style. The church of Vallensbæk came to the Reformation in the King's possession, but in 1688, the Office of Ethics and Counselor Caspar Schiøler acquired the church. Later in 1755, he passed over to the owner of the estate, Hans Nicolai Nissen, and after his death, under the Nissen Foundation. Until the fire in 2007, you could still see the signature and monograms of NH Nissen and after his nephew, W. Pechüle, you in Vallensbæk 1801-45, on the altar's roof. The church was privately owned until the mid-1950s. Today the church is owned by the church at the church council.
Goryōkaku (五稜郭) (literally, 'five-point fort') is a star fort in the Japanese city of Hakodate on the island of Hokkaido. The fortress was completed in 1866. It was the main fortress of the short-lived Republic of Ezo.
Goryōkaku was designed in 1855 by Takeda Ayasaburō and Jules Brunet. Their plans was based on the work of the French architect Vauban. The fortress was completed in 1866, two years before the collapse of the Tokugawa Shogunate. It is shaped like a five-pointed star. This allowed for greater numbers of gun emplacements on its walls than a traditional Japanese fortress, and reduced the number of blind spots where a cannon could not fire.
The fort was built by the Tokugawa shogunate to protect the Tsugaru Strait against a possible invasion by the Meiji government.
Goryōkaku is famous as the site of the last battle of the Boshin War.
