Insights into the courtly culture of bygone times

Celle is one of the most important residence cities in the state of Lower Saxony. For almost three centuries it was the permanent residence of the dukes of Brunswick-Lüneburg and therefore the seat of government in the most significant Guelphs principality.
The palace, surrounded by idyllic half-timbered houses, still bears traces of its time as a medieval seat of power, as a baroque residence until 1705, and as a summer residence for the kings of Hanover in the 19th century.
Come to the Residence Museum and experience history through our modern displays about the castle and those who lived here, and get to know the oldest surviving European royal family, the Guelphs.
