Celle is

the first sustainable town in North Germany

Sustainable Celle

A smaller town holiday with far-sighted vision

In January 2017, Celle was the first city in northern Germany to be certified as a sustainable destination. With the re-certification in 2020, we would like to continue to express to all guests, residents and partners that sustainable tourism is a matter close to our hearts. As a "sustainable travel destination" we are committed to constantly improving ourselves in the areas of environmental protection, working conditions, customer information and fair business relationships and to take responsibility for the future..

This is what makes Celle Sustainable

  • Celle has had a sustainability council since 2016. Its role is to plan and implement the further development of our goals and processes.

  • As a sustainable destination, we are committed to buying regional products. Through this, we actively avoid long-haul transportation and support local products and producers

  • We are committed to the preservation of our unique, listed half-timbered houses and buildings. These shape the image and character of the city.

  • Our heathland, river meadows, the moors and forests are part of the regional identity. We want to protect and preserve them

  • For us, sustainability is an ongoing process. That is why we are constantly further developing our products and services.

We live sustainability

The path to sustainability is an exciting, wonderful and not always easy process. Partners and hosts in Celle have been deeply committed to sustainability for many years now - each in their own way. Let us inspire you with stories on how we embarked on the path to becoming the town that lives sustainability and responsibility and continues to improve, step by step.
