  • We are at in Celle and visit the Castle almost every time. An impressive, beautiful Baroque building is surrounded by a beautiful park, which joins the French garden. Right in in the courtyard of the castle in the building, one arrives on the first floor in the Castle Café Teatro. Very tasty cake, get-together and friendly operations. In addition there is a chapel, a castle theatre, guided tours, etc.

  • As a leisure destination ideally suited, the theatre in the castle is supposedly the oldest recorded bar rock Theatre in Europe. Plays are great staged, the new Director brings very fresh wind in the seasons. We have a subscription for 4 years and are thrilled. The theater restoration has recently changed from the vaulted cellar in the fireplace room on the upper floors, including the price and the selection has suffered very. We hope that soon in the cellar can be eaten. The Museum and the chapel are a must for all visitors and tourists. The State of preservation is phenomenal.
