Edinburgh Christmas Markets and Winter Festivals

Edinburgh at Christmas time is truly magical! Each year Edinburgh's Christmas and Edinburgh's Hogmanay come up with an exciting array of events to get everyone in the mood for the holiday season. Scotland's capital is a fanastic place to visit at any time of year, but we think there's something extra special about the city during the festive season.
