In the north of the British Isles, a rough but beautiful country with all its Highlands, lochs, bens, castles and cities enchants people of every age: Scotland. Its capital Edinburgh in the south-east, next to the Highlands and the Firth of Forth, has over 500,000 inhabitants. Old impressive buildings are situated next to large parks and modern shopping malls, hills and bridges are spread everywhere and lots of museums gather around the city centre. On many places like gates or walls you can find the motives of the thistle, the national flower of Scotland, and the unicorn, Scotland’s national animal.

Thinking of Edinburgh, many people mention Edinburgh Castle, the Palace of Holyroodhouse or Calton Hill because they are popular motifs shown on almost every postcard. But this city has so much more to offer. Behind every corner hides a secret – and a bagpiper in a kilt playing ‘Flower of Scotland’, ‘Highland Cathedral’ and ‘Amazing Grace’. Well, at least if it doesn’t rain too much. Sentences like ‘It’s a wee bit windy today, isn’t it?’  belong to everyday life and seem almost ironic to people not used to the Scottish weather. But still, there are also warm and sunny days in Edinburgh, don’t worry.

Some people may also think of Edinburgh as a city closely linked to famous historical figures like Mary, Queen of Scots or fictional characters like Harry Potter. Both of them are highly represented in different parts of the capital of Scotland.

This guide wants to show you these unique and fascinating places and introduce you to the facets of Edinburgh. Therefore, it presents you with a selection in nine categories. Several insider tips will help you to make the best out of your visit and the crossed pound symbol will tell you instantly if the place has admission prices or not. Therefore, you can choose in advance, where you want to go to without blowing up your bank account.

Come and learn more about the capital of Scotland, get answers to questions like ‘What is a Ceilidh?’ or ‘Why is there a statue of a dog named Greyfriar’s Bobby?’ and why this city is worth visiting.
