Discover the beautiful Guelph residence in Celle! Experience the history of the palace and its inhabitants in the Residenzmuseum and get to know the oldest still existing royal house in Europe: the Guelphs. Experience a palace that is full of (hi)stories and, at the same time, filled with life today: exhibitions, events, theatre - all this is integrated into an undestroyed, unique half-timbered ensemble.
