The Stechinelli-Haus originates from 1630, was altered in 1690 and was rebuilt after the Second World War. Its name pays homage to its architect, Francesco Capellini, referred to as “Stechinelli”. As a son of an impoverished noble family, he is said to have saved the life of the last Duke of Celle, Georg Wilhelm, in Venice. To thank him, the Duke took him into his service as his General Post Master. In this role he achieved wealth and renown.
