Knabstrup is a small railway town, with a population of 1,078 (as of January 1, 2014),[1] at the railroad between Kalundborg and Holbæk in Holbæk Municipality, Region Zealand in Denmark.

Knabstrup Teglværk, which is located south of the town, was a former brick and ceramic factory that was closed in 1988. It is currently being renovated into a center for ecological awareness by the local environmental collective Makvärket.[2]

Knabstrup Manor, where the horse breed Knabstrupper was bred, is located 2 kilometres southeast of the town.
