Celle : Michelin's recommendations
From 1378 to 1705, Celle was the residence of the Lüneburg branch of the Guelph dukes, banished from their original ducal seat by emancipated burghers. Celle retains the air of an aristocratic retreat with its well preserved town centre featuring 16C, 17C and 18C half-timbered houses. The town is associated with the lives of three women, the Three Ladies of Celle : Eléonore d'Olbreuse, a beautiful Huguenot from Poitou, her daughter Sophia-Dorothy, and Caroline Matilda of England.
