Edinburgh - Auld Reekie's Legacy
From the former factory town of Auld Reekie (old smokers) only the many chimneys that rise from the roofs of the Old Town into the sky remind. In fact, Edinburgh has evolved into an open world metropolis with many attractions and activities for its visitors. Whiskey tasting, city tours,
Museums, modern shopping - Edinburgh has something for every taste. The city in Scotland is particularly attractive because of its proximity to Glasgow and Stirling. All you need is a suitable holiday apartment in Edinburgh and you can find it here on Holidu!
What does Scotland's capital have to offer?
Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland and has an ancient history. The heart of the city are Old Town and New Town, which couldn't be more different. Old Town still has a medieval flair with winding streets, cobblestones and old buildings. New Town, on the other hand, with its shopping mile Princes Street, has wide straight streets and neoclassical houses. The two parts of the city are close together, separated by the Princes Gardens, an idyllic park that is particularly popular in summer. This means that you can easily move from one to the other in the
in another part of town. By the way, Edinburgh is best explored on foot. This is the only way to discover all the charm and beauty of the city. Most of the sights are also close together, so you'll just stumble from one experience to the next. Edinburgh also offers many different events throughout the year, from "Hogmanay" in December to the certainly biggest cultural festival "The Fringe" in August.

Top 5 Travel Tips for Edinburgh
Edinburgh Castle is the stunning landmark that most tourists see from afar when they first come to Edinburgh. This is due to the fact that the castle was built on an extinct volcano and can therefore be seen from everywhere. A visit to the castle is highly recommended and, given its size and attractions, you should plan on spending a day visiting it. During your visit, you will also have the freedom to choose an audio tour, which is also available in German, or one of the guided English tours, where the guides can tell you many anecdotes and interesting facts about the castle, the Scottish crown jewels or the stone of Scone. From centrally located accommodation such as cottages, apartments and vacation rentals in Edinburgh, the sightseeing hotspots are within walking distance.
2 Especially exciting for children is certainly the Camera Obscura. Not far from Edinburgh Castle you can not only admire the 19th century giant pinhole camera and learn more about optics, but also experiment up close with optical illusions. Great fun for the whole family!
3. There is only one place to go for the right souvenir: the Royal Mile. The historically important road is exactly one tartan mile long and connects Edinburgh Castle with Holyrood Palace, which in turn stands next to the Parliament. So after you've caught a bargain, we recommend a walk down to the Queen's summer residence and the modern Parliament building, where you can sit in the auditorium if you're interested and follow the British debates.
4th Edinburgh's dark side and not for the faint hearted are the Edinburgh Vaults. In nightly tours you can go underground in Edinburgh. In the 18th century, as the home of the poorest and the scene of criminal business, the Vaults have many gruesome stories to tell and visitors still tell of unexplainable events they experienced on the tours. See for yourself! If you want to hide under the blanket quickly, simply book one of the centrally located holiday apartments in Edinburgh here at Holidu!
5. Fans of Harry Potter will get their money's worth in Edinburgh, because Edinburgh is the true birthplace of the sorcerer's apprentice!

Watch budding writers write or sit at one of the man-high windows with a cup of coffee and look up to the castle, the inspiration for Hogwarts. Then make a detour to Greyfriars Kirkyard (just around the corner from the café), a cemetery where fans will discover names like McGonagall, Moody or even Tom Riddell!
