Korsør-Stenen

'Korsør Stenen' is a road pole at the southern main entrance to the city centre. In the old days the road to the town centre was closed by a bar. To pass through to sell your farm goods you had to pay toll.

The inscription on the front reads 'Corsøer', the old spelling of Korsør. The other side reads 'BYE V.P. 1791': 'BYE' means town, 'V.P.' means Vej Pæl (road pole) and '1791' signifies the city limits as of 1791.

These old road poles are very rare. There are only a few of them left in Denmark.
