— A VISIT TO CELLE —
August 25, 2008 — Celle
is arguably one of the most picturesque towns in all of Germany, and on this
website you will hear no rebuttals. Located in Lower Saxony on the southern
edge of the broad Lüneburg Heath, Celle is a modern community with a
medieval veneer. The town center consists of beautifully cobbled streets
bordered by lovingly preserved timber-framed buildings that have stood for centuries.
Many date back to the 1500s. The Ducal Palace, the foundation of which
was constructed in 1292, is considered Celle's oldest prominent structure...
and it sits right in the middle of town!
We visited Celle over
the weekend and had a lovely time, as you'll see:
