The village church stands in the middle of a park that was laid out in around 1820. But the original layout was different: the church once stood in the middle of the village.

in 1816, Rittmeister Otto von Arnim bought the Criewen estate, which had existed for centuries. He also had the manor house built that is located in the park today – often referred to as the “palace” by the people of Criewen – and he commissioned Peter Joseph Lenné to create a landscape park. The old village had to make way for this project, so it was rebuilt further east. As such, only the church has been left standing on the original village site.

The fieldstone church in Gandenitz dates back to the 13th century. This church burnt down during the Thirty Years’ War and was rebuilt between 1682 and 1692.

There are numerous graves under the church. Members of the von Stegelitz family are buried in the chancel: they owned the Criewen estate up until the beginning of the 18th century. Under the organ loft there is the tomb of the von Luck family, who owned the estate until 1760. The chapel was added to the west end of the church in 1856. Above the entrance is the coat of arms of the von Arnim family, who owned the estate from 1816 to 1945. In the chapel there are stained lead glass windows from the Royal Institute for Stained Glass in Berlin.
