World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Edinburgh is known for historic sites, museums, nature, nightlife, and childrens museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, explore the galleries of Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, and sample the fine beverages at The Scotch Whisky Experience.

To find maps, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Edinburgh travel planner.

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In January, plan for daily highs up to 7°C, and evening lows to 1°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
