Edinburgh – where past and present meet

The city of the month

Among the most important sights of the city are St Giles Cathedral and Tron Kirk church. The Old Town and the New Town, an 18th-century district with classical buildings, magnificent parks and spacious squares, are all UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Historic heritage and cutting-edge modern architecture, including the Parliament Building inaugurated in 2004, make Edinburgh a lively and stimulating city. Historical and art museums, theatres and attractive pub areas such as Grassmarket offer visitors plenty of entertainment. If you have a little longer than a weekend, visit the nearby picturesque lakes (lochs), hiking areas and golf courses with their breath-taking panoramas.

In the winter timetable, Lufthansa flies nonstop from Frankfurt to Edinburgh Airport (EDI) up to twice a day, and from Munich twice a week.
