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.
