    Old town hall

    by chancay Updated Jul 24, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: In 1292 when Duke "Otto der Strenge" (the Severe) have lay out the town of Celle according to his plans the town hall was built, too.

    The building is an impressive trace of the ducal reign. In the 14th and 16th century the town hall was extended and sumptuously decorated. The gable to the north is a masterpiece of the renaissance, typical for the region along the river Weser. In the "Ratskeller" (restaurant under the town hall) there are still Gothic cross vaults.

    Diagonally opposite at the street corner "Markt"/"Schuhstraße" the sound of a carillion is heard every hour.

    Fondest memory: By chance the day I have been there was a "Schützenumzug" (a parade of members of traditional hunter clubs) through the city. Every club has its music band who plays the typical traditional march music..

    Favorite thing: Celle has many well-preserved half-timbered houses, most of them are located in the center, which is small but it will amaze first time visitors, who have never seen this kind of architecture. Even the local McDonald's is located in a half-timbered house.

    Favorite thing: The big square in the center of the Old Town is called "Großer Plan". Here the christmas market is held and in the summer it is a wonderful place to relax in one of the street cafes.
