History

Bandholm was originally part of Østofte parish. As the population of the village increased, there was a need for a local church. Count Knuth of neighbouring Knuthenborg provided land for its construction on the corner of Birketvej and Koholtvej. The architect, H.S. Sibbern (1826–1901) also designed the various buildings in Knuthenborg Park. In 1881, Bandholm became a parish in its own right.

Interior

There is no altarpiece in the church but three stained-glass windows decorate the east wall, the central one depicting the Last Supper. The church has a Busch organ, renovated by Starup & Søn in 1974.
