A little about the city and the hotel's history
Bandholm Hotel has built its foundation on the life that over time has been in and around Bandholm city where the harbor has been the natural hub ever since the Midieval Ages. The original old inn was royally privileged in 1692.
In the mid-1800s there was a revival of the city because of the shipping of grain and other agricultural products that took place. A boom which today might be a little hard to spot, but has helped to give the city and the hotel its own special identity and romantic nature.
When the city was at its peak it had 53 stores. There were several banks, three merchants, several tailors and, moreover, two hotels, of which Bandholm Hotel was considered the most noble and respectable. Additionally, there were down through Havnegade several large granaries, of which wheat magazine today is a well preserved example which is definitely worth a look.
Bandholm's history is also closely related to Knuthenborg, which has owned most of the city, including the harbor, which the estate still owns along with several of the city's buildings even today. Knuthenborg has for many years owned Bandholm Hotel and thus also in 1886, when the present main building was built. A city and a hotel with lots of history.
From Bandholm are daily ferries to Asko / Lilleø where you can experience life on a few of Denmark's many small islands.
Bandholm Hotel is a good base when you visit Lolland-Falster.
