If Edinburgh were a Whisky it would be an old Glenfiddich. Its taste would be dry, its scent spicy, and its colour deep and dark. But its finish would be warm and lingering.

This unique beverage would be served in an astonishingly modern and colourful glass and you would drink it in an old and dusty pub next to pleasant Scots chatting about the good old times.

The points of comparison are a fitting description of Scotland’s windy city. Although Edinburgh is quite big with its 250km², at least for Scotland, it perfectly combines the anonymity of a city and the intimacy of a village. Of course you might not know every single person you pass by, but I’m sure everyone is willing to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Keeping in mind its breathtaking architecture, where every stone has its own story to tell, this doesn’t seem too hard.

When you wander over the Old Town’s ancient cobblestones, you’ll feel the sensation of Scottish life a couple of hundred years ago. You’ll pass by many buildings whose stories you might not know, but within a few seconds there will be a charming old man, willing to share his knowledge with you.

Hopping over North Bridge to the New Town, you’ll get an impression of Edinburgh’s enchanting variety. Numerous museums cover everything from Scottish history to modern art exhibitions. On your way along Princes Street, you will come across a number of people playing the bagpipes, some of them by themselves, fully dressed up in their kilts, some of them a bit more modern, accompanied by drums and electric guitars.

Every little nook and cranny tells a story and will give you a different insight in how Scottish life has changed over the centuries and how proud the Scots are of their long history and traditions. And who knows, maybe you will be lucky and encounter the stereotypical long bearded, old man, sitting in the corner of a rustic pub, sipping his whisky next to a plate full of haggis.

So don’t miss Scotland’s wonderful capital, which manages to perfectly combine its ancient history with its modern aspects. Don‘t hesitate – go visit Edinburgh!
