This cycle route takes you through the scenic highlights of Celle and the surrounding region.
On your journey you will pass fields, meadows and forests, interspersed with expanses of heather. Take a break at the idyllic ponds near Wildeck or go on a discovery tour of the Healing Herbs Garden near Celle’s Dammaschwiesen meadow.
From Celle’s main train station (P + R), travel north over the Aller bridge and go to the village of Klein Hehlen, following the signs towards the former youth hostel (Jugendherberge) there. From the youth hostel, continue north on the Weghausstraße. You’ll cycle under the B 3 on the Heinhof road - carry straight on this road until you come to Scheuen.
At Scheuen, turn left onto the Arlohstrasse and keep to the main high street (Haupstrasse). From there the route goes to the right. Stay on the cycle path along the high street to Altensalzkoth, where you’ll see the Helms Hotel. Turn right at the Helms Hotel and cycle along the small Miele road and continue on the signposted cycle route to the right. At the next crossroads, turn right in the direction of Wildeck Teiche and you will come to the Försterei Wildeck (the Wildeck Forestry building).
Keep left at the forestry building and follow the intermediate signs towards Rebberlah. You’ll be on a slight incline here and the route to Rebberlah is very sandy in places, so do watch out for bumps along the way, which are a natural feature of the landscape. At the intermediate signpost turn left (the route runs along the same direction as pylons). You are now cycling through a wonderful heather-rich forest area, which extends to the right and left of your cycle route. Cycle on to Rebberlah and the main high street (`Am Rickberg`) and as you pass through Rebberlah, keep to the right and following the signs for B 191 Radweg cycle route, turn immediately here to the right. Please be sure to close the game gates behind you!
Cycle along the route almost to the B 191 in Hornshof and then keep right on a traffic-calmed road which runs alongside the railway lines, to the village of Garßen. You cross the train lines and continue on the Stellwerksweg road into Garßen. Continue past the school here and after a short distance, you will arrive at Altenhagen, via Bostel.
From Altenhagen, it’s a short ride along the Fasanenweg road back to the Dammaschwiesen meadow in Celle. It’s worth making a short stop here at the Healing Herbs Garden and discover the many fascinating medicinal plants there. Cycling alongside the river Aller, you cross the Pfennigsbrücke and you will reach the Historical Old Town of Celle. Take a break and let yourself be enchanted by the sights of this beautiful, half-timbered ducal town or why not take advantage of the many different gastronomic delights to be found here? From the Old Town centre, you will be able to find your way back onto the Bahnhofsstraße which takes you back to your starting point, Celle’s main station.
Please note: the stretch of this route from Wildeck to Rebberlah and in the direction of Garßen, the terrain is very sandy in places with naturally occuring bumps which are a feature of the landscape, so do take care. We would also advise you to always check the weather before setting out.
We recommend a visit to Celle’s Healing Herbs Garden, which offers a wealth of different medicinal plants. The adjoining café, "KräuThaer" is looked after by students from the Albrecht-Thaer School (agricultural specialists). The delicious, home-made dishes based on popular, traditional recipes offer a tempting delight to the palate here.
