Celle is certainly another highlight of any journey to Northern Germany and Lüneburg Heath. It features the world’s largest cohesive half-timbered building ensemble in the historic Old Town, a picturesque Welf Castle with a castle theatre, and both classic and very modern museums. Celle surprises visitors with its Bauhaus architecture and light art, and provides a most attractive place for young and old to shop thanks to the diverse shops, restaurants and accommodation located within a compact area.

The city has much to offer, and also features good transport connections to Hamburg and Hanover. All attractions, including Celle castle, can be reached on foot. Buses stop at a central location at the castle.

Celle was the first city in Northern Germany to receive a certification for sustainable trading, and since January 2017 has officially been a ‘Sustainable Destination’. Several tourism partners in the city have collaborated to make this sustainable development palpable for visitors. You can find further information on sustainable commitmenton the Celle Tourism website.  

Celle is also a popular starting point from which to discover Lüneburg Heath. It is easy to go on excursions to other cities from Celle, such as Wolfsburg’s Autostadt.
