Take advantage of the unique location of the a&o hostel right in the centre of the Scottish capital during your trip to Edinburgh. However, central location is not only for shopping enthusiasts, but also for culture lovers! From the accommodation, you can quickly find many different sights to discover!

The good thing is that you don't have to walk long distances from the a&o hostel in Edinburgh to enjoy Edinburgh's sights. Due to its density, the city can be explored wonderfully on foot, so that you can be at one of the many attractions in just a few minutes.

Besides the majestic Edinburgh Castle, which dominates the cityscape, Holyrood Palace and the Royal Mile and countless other attractions are just waiting for you to discover them. Or enjoy traditional Scottish street music on Waverly Bridge. You can experience folk music with the bagpipes not only on Waverly Bridge, but also in one of the many pubs in the Old Town - pure Edinburgh! An exploration of the old town from the a&o hostel in Edinburgh is worthwhile in any case. Once you've been to Edinburgh, you'll immediately notice how extraordinary this historic city is. Even Theodor Fontane recognised the special charm that the city exudes and described Edinburgh as the Athens of the North.

Edinburgh impresses above all with its versatility. In addition to the charming old town with its many small, winding streets and shops that invite you to stroll around, there is also a small river running through the middle of the city. Surrounded by small sections of park, a walk along the 17 km long course of the river will easily make you forget that you are in a large Scottish city. If you can't get enough of the cool water, Edinburgh even has a beach with an attractive promenade that locals and visitors to the city like as a place to unwind.

Our a&o hostel in Edinburgh: ideal location for nature lovers too

Scotland's capital also has a lot to offer outside the diverse city centre.

If you arrive by plane and take a look at the city from above before landing, you will quickly notice that there are many green spots in and around Edinburgh.

Nature lovers will definitely get their money's worth in Edinburgh. For instance, how about a visit to the Botanical Gardens or a short breather in the Princes Street Gardens, which are especially popular with locals as an oasis of calm. If you walk a little further to the end of Princes Street, you have the opportunity to marvel at the breathtaking city panorama from Calton Hill. The hill, which is connected to Holyrood Park, offers a wonderful view of the city's landmark, a 251-metre-high lava rock formation - the so-called Arthur's Seat.
