Contrasts between the Middle Ages and the film animal park

    As the gateway to the Lüneburg Heath, Celle has retained its medieval charm and combined it with the modern needs of today's visitors. The small town of Celle in Lower Saxony is famous for its 480 historic half-timbered houses dating back to the 16th century. A walk through the old town is like a journey back in time. One of the oldest sights is the Renaissance and Baroque-style castle, the construction of which began in the 13th century. With its location between Lüneburg and Hanover, Celle is considered the southernmost gateway to the Lüneburg Heath, which invites you to take long excursions on foot or by canoe through the Aller-Urstromtal valley. Other destinations for day trips are the Celle swimming area, the Erse-Park Uetze or the Eschede film animal park. A suitable starting point for tours is the IntercityHotel Celle on the edge of the old town with the option of using public transport throughout the day.
