Baroque meets Bauhaus
With over 490 colourful half-timbered houses, Celle as the ‘Jewel on the Aller’ presents the largest compact ensemble of its kind in Europe, and is one of the most splendid towns in Germany. Only few know that Celle is virtually a birthplace of the modern architecture ‘Neues Bauen’, and in regards to Bauhaus it plays in the same league as the towns Weimar and Dessau. Not only is there a quantitative, but also a qualitative variety of wonderfully preserved buildings, which are still partially used according to their original purpose–e.g. the school ‘Altstädter Schule‘, known as ‘Glass School’, attracted visitors from all over the world.
The architecture presents itself to the guest in a variety of ways. You can experience the buildings with a guided tour, by bike and by Segway or in the Bauhaus Train (a small electric train).
