Welcome to Christmas City Celle

Experience a winter’s tale in front of the backdrop of half-timbered houses from 28 Nov. to 29 Dec. 2019

At the end of November, the Old Town of Celle and the whole city turn into a Christmas fairy tale again. Not only the famous Christmas Market in the old town creates a wintery atmosphere, but also the castle front yard with the Celler Winter Magic lays under the sign of mulled wine and fir sprigs.

The Highlights of 2019

Under the motto "Christmas Town Celle", the Christmas market will be expanded again in 2019 with many new promotions and events.
