Town hall is great even outside. It was not open. Old lattice houses and atmosphere are great. There are parking spaces nearby (maybe Karstadt's parking lot is the most suitable, you can also do some shopping). On the street there are occasional parking spaces.

Maybe not unique here, but if you are lucky enough to hear them at work - you will appreciate it. One must pay a bit attention to find the Glockenspiel, as the detailing of vast majority of houses around is so rich it makes this...More

I have to admit, I walked past the carillon on the wall several times without noticing them. They bells are quite small and are easily overlooked given how fancy all the old houses look. They play multiple times a day. I really liked the tunes,...More

I stood by waiting for the 11am display from the Glockenspiel. I don't think the display happens on the hour every hour - only on some hours - so best to check. There was a little gathering of people all willing and ready to enjoy...More

This is the clock tower of Celle and it has five wooden figures, who were related to the local history. Unfortunately, I was not around to listen to the music of the clock.

Not very exiting. Five figures wandering from door to door, said to be Celle personalities. I didn't see an explanation.

Most of these pictures are not in Celle. The location is inaccurate. The first picture is the one in Celle. They come out from the box and go back in. Do it at 11, 1 ,3 , 5. Pretty lame.

This old building is magnificent in its entirety. The architecture, the sculptures, and of course the stunning musical clock. The square itself is vibey and full of activity.

I spent two years in Germany, but one of the nicest cities there is Celle, its town shops and gasthouses, and oldy worldly passage into the past is a great day out. The amazing thing is that Celle was completely untouched by the WWII bombings,...More
