    Good Rastorf is a world apart, between forest and meadows, an estate that was first documented in the 13th century and, apart from minor interruptions, for over 600 years the Rantzaus heard, a family that counts to the Holstein Uradel from Governor of the Danish kings, diplomats and politicians.
    Architecturally, Gut Rastorf is one of the flagship properties of Schleswig-Holstein, thanks to its pretty late Baroque style court buildings. They were, as well as the classicistic mansion, damaged in the Second World War by bombs, but then rebuilt by Christiane's father Kuno Graf zu Rantzau with great effort and attention to detail.

    The estate goes back to a knight seat with a moated castle. The property has been owned by the Rantzau family since the 14th century.
