Europe Off The Beaten Path: 338 reviews and 640 photos
Celle, like so many other German towns and cities has had a colourful history dating back many many centuries. I was not prepared for the size of the town which I was soon to find out, has a population of 71,000 people.
In the town centre alone, there are upwards of about 450 half timbered houses, all of which are protected and hence are extremely well kept. Some date back as far as the 16th century and most were spared during the allied bombing in April 1945, because the town surrendered quietly to the Allies and very little bombing took place.
