    The Celle Castle is one of the most beautiful castles of the Welfs, one of the oldest of the existing royal houses. First mentioned as a "Castrum" in 1318, the initially simple castle was rebuilt over the centuries to a lavish and magnificent four-wing complex and constantly expanded. Renaissance and Baroque are here a distinctive mix.
    In addition to the Residenz Museum, the castle houses the oldest baroque theater in Europe, still in use today, as well as the castle chapel, the only church north of the Alps with completely preserved Renaissance furnishings.

    The monument "Stallion Wohlklang in der Freedomdressur" in the castle park was erected and unveiled in 1985 ... and only a short time later the whip was missing from the stud's raised hand!
    In fact, it has not reappeared to this day.

    First mentioned in 1315 as "Castrum Celle". From 1530, the former castle became a Renaissance castle. In the 17th century the castle chapel and the castle theater were integrated into the castle.

    The oldest still playable castle theater in Germany is located in the Celle castle!
    Especially at Christmas time, a very nice children's Christmas program is offered here every year.
