Ever since the late 1940s, Edinburgh is annually home to a number of festivals. The first festival was Edinburgh International Festival, and then came the Fringe. Also during summer, the city is home to Edinburgh Book Festival, the largest of its kind in the world. Don’t miss Edinburgh Film Festival either. For a magnificent display, watch the Military Tattoo at the Edinburgh Castle. There is a Jazz Festival in late July, while Hogmanay is one of the most famous New Years celebrations in the world. The Children’s International Theatre Festival marks the beginning of summer with joyful celebration and childish exuberance.
A visit to Edinburgh is not complete without tasting scotch whisky. Embark on a tour or attend a tasting party.

Are you fascinated by the dark side of history? If so, make sure to visit the Edinburgh Dungeons. The labyrinth stretches under the Royal Mile, the Castle and further into the unknown. Legend has it that it’s haunted. Listen carefully and you might hear a distant drum beat.
