The history of Celle is deeply connected to the history of the residents of the Celle Palace.

Whoever wants to delve into this exciting and hugely varied period of history should without doubt visit the Residence Museum.
Here, through a modern re-enactment, you can experience the history of the Palace and its inhabitants and learn more about the oldest princely house in Europe that still exists today: the Guelphs. The Residence Museum can be explored independently or as part of a public tour.

Book an exciting and lively guided tour of the palace. Here the visitor will gain interesting insights into Baroque court life and the customs and traditions of the respective personalities at the court, such as Caroline Mathilde, Sophie Dorothea or King Georg V of Hanover.

Please note that the historically important and unique Palace Chapel, the Palace Theatre (subject to availability) and the Palace Kitchens can only be shown as part of a guided tour.
