Neuenhäusen is a suburb of the town of Celle in Lower Saxony, Germany, and lies south of the Altstadt (old town) in its centre. A particular feature of this suburb is that it is where most of the many authorities and public institutions, that have their headquarters in Celle, are located.

History[edit]

The village was established in 1680 under Duke George William of Brunswick-Lüneburg. The older "Altenhäusen" was incorporated along with Neuenhäusen in 1869 into the town of Celle. Neuenhäusen borders on the River Aller in the north, the River Fuhse in the east, the Wilhelm-Heinichen Ring road in the south and the railway facilities of the Hamburg-Hanover main line to the west.

Politics[edit]

Neuenhäusen council represents the interests of the suburb to the town council and consists of nine councillors. The chair is Joachim Ehlers.

Places of interest[edit]

The neoclassical Neuenhäusen church was built in 1751 on the site of a 1710 chapel. In 1866 the clock tower was added and, in 1963, a small chapel was built onto it. It has numerous carvings by Hubert Distler.

Neuenhäusen Cemetery is a protected monument. Burials were conducted here as early as 1690. In part of the cemetery is the largest enclosed field of slab graves (Plattengräberfeld) in North Germany.
