Christian is the thirteenth generation Ahlefeldt at Tranekær Castle. At the age of 30, he took over the castle from his father Preben Ahlefeldt-Laurvig. Christian keeps busy, with new concepts and a keen interest in everything that takes place at the Castle and the surrounding land. He is a competent gun, father, and businessman, and loves the buzzy way of life at the Castle.
Mette and Christian have succeeded in establishing Tranekær Castle as an exclusive meeting venue for business people, shooting parties and others. Everyone is received and greeted as guests of the Count and Countess, immediately making the visitors feel welcome and at home inside the English red walls.
