Celle is characterised by its compact half-timbered (german: Fachwerk, english also tudor style) ensemble in the city centre, one of the largest in Germany. Since the city remained undestroyed during the 2nd World War, there are half-timbered houses from several centuries here. Celle is part of the route “From the Elbe to the Harz” in the network of the Deutsche Fachwerkstrasse (German Half Timbered House Road).
High Street Zöllnerstraße
The Zöllnerstraße is one of the best preserved half-timbered streets and at the same time the most important shopping street of the city. In this streetscape we see the section between Rabengasse (right) and the Stechbahn/Markt (left). On the left edge of the picture you can see the Old Town Hall (Altes Rathaus). Due to the listed buildings the shops are mostly smaller and limited to the ground floor. The two larger half-timbered houses to the left are occupied by Nordsee and the Douglas perfumery at the time of the photograph. In addition to the office supplies shop Ludwig Haupt Jr., fashion stores follow: engbers, Apollo Optik, hunkemöller, unterwegs, ONLY, Jack & Jones, claire’s and Gina Laura.
