The rising form of a 13th-century church marks the location of a historic parish that once had a fortress and a hamlet on the beaches of Korsør Bay. Strongholds here most certainly date back to at least the 12th century, and together with the forts at Nyborg and Sprogø, they all served to control the route over the Store Bælt. It was a significant center of trade beginning in the 13th century, and in the 14th century, Tårnborg joined forces with other estates to expand its overseas trade. After a financial crisis in the 15th century, the castle was destroyed.
