  • The castle of Celle itself is very pretty and can score with the theater, but all was fulfilled properly with life through the Guide: very entertaining, very knowledgeable - that was really very good.

  • During our small stopover in Celle, the castle could not be missed. It is centrally located and is well worth a visit anyway.

  • A small but fine Castle. You should book a guided tour to learn the hilarious anecdotes and incidents.
