Experience Scottish hospitality on a city break to Edinburgh.
The Middle Ages and Modern Times
Edinburgh has been Scotland's capital city since the 15th century and with around 500,000 inhabitants it is the second largest city after Glasgow.
Dive into the narrow streets of the old town on a city trip to the Scottish metropolis - conquer Victoria Street with its colourful facades, numerous cafés and shops, and then relax in the Royal Botanic Garden.
Castle feeling and culinary delights
A special highlight is the landmark of the city: Edinburgh Castle. It sits majestically on a hill in the middle of the city and invites you to spend hours exploring. Above Farmer's Market, directly in front of Edinburgh Castle, floats the scent of bread, flowers and fruit, wild boar, chutneys and chocolate. Food and drink - there's hardly anything Edinburgh likes better: the city boasts the highest density of restaurants and pubs in the UK and constantly shows how much it loves to party.
But Edinburgh has more to offer than restaurants and pubs. Visit one of the museums or take part in the Edinburgh Festival in the summer. The numerous cultural events make it clear that Edinburgh's music and theatre in particular are of great international importance.
Edinburgh Military Tattoo
The Edinburgh Military Tattoo is certainly a crowd-puller. If you are planning your city trip in August, you have the opportunity to see a live performance of this year's edition.
