Pedestrian route from the main station to the town centre (approx. 1.4 km):
Celle’s historical Old Town is just a short walk away from the main station.  From the main passenger concourse, leave the station by the main entrance, which takes you onto the Bahnhofstrasse. From here, walk across the Thaeplatz, onto the Arno-Schmidt-Platz and the Westcellertorstraße and you have reached Celle’s historical Old Town centre.   This should only take around 15 minutes at an easy pace.  Simply follow the signs for ‚Richtung Altstadt‘.

Or you can get to the Schloßplatz in the inner town centre, more quickly by bus:
Bus lines 100, 800, 9, 900,12 and 13 will all take you directly from the main station to the town centre.

You can buy a ‚Town Centre Hopper‘ style ticket (Innenstadthüpfer) directly on board the bus from the driver at the start of your journey,.  This covers your journey from the main station to the Schlossplatz in the Historical Old Town (or Old Town to the main station).  The journey takes around 5-7 minutes. Tickets cost 1,50 € for adults and 0,80 € for children.
