Celle – Lovable ducal residence with Europe’s largest ensemble of half timbered houses
Half-timbered buildings, Bauhaus, Celle palace, 24-hour art museum, regional specialities and leisurely shopping: Celle means variety with its harmonious combination of tradition and modernity. Even today you can follow in the footsteps of royalty in Celle. In addition to the palace with its Residence Museum, Baroque theatre and chapel, there are gardens and parks to stroll in. Fans of modernist architecture can find the works of the architect Otto Haesler all over the city. And of course there’s also no shortage of culinary delights. Celle, the gateway to Lüneburg Heath, is always worth a visit.
Committed to sustainability
Celle is northern Germany’s first sustainable city, receiving its certification in 2017. Many hotels, businesses, the Congress Union and the Celler Badeland have undertaken to protect the environment and resources. And more and more are signing up. Many independent shops don’t just talk about sustainability – they are committed to putting it into practice.
