World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Do your shopping at Jenners and Doodles. Royal Yacht Britannia and Camera Obscura and World of Illusions will appeal to museum buffs. There's much more to do: explore the striking landscape at Arthur's Seat, don't miss a visit to The Royal Mile, steep yourself in history at Palace of Holyroodhouse, and get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland.

To see where to stay, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Edinburgh trip planner.

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major aiports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 15°C, and evening lows to 7°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
