The 15 Most Beautiful Cities in Europe

What are the most beautiful cities in Europe for a city trip by plane? This is a top 15 with the most beautiful European cities: beautiful in spring, summer, fall and winter. All cities full of classical sights, atmosphere and the historic brilliance.

15. Edinburgh, Scotland

Walking through the streets of Edingburgh feels like you have made a journey back in time. You will not get bored of churches, cathedrals, castles and parks here. The annual highlight is the Edinburgh Festival, which are several cultural festivals that take place simultaneously. This attracts many visitors. In the old town you will find the ancient Edinburgh Castle on top of the Castle Rock. From here you have a great view of the city. You can also find the main street of the old part here: The Royal Mile. Including The Real Mary’s King Close, a complex of underground spaces and tunnels from the 17th century.

For those who want to shop: go to Princes Street for the big department store chains and to Royal Mile for the smaller boutiques. And “when in Edinburgh” you must definitely end up in a pub. Maybe you get some inspiration. After all, it was in the Elephant House pub where JK Rowling came up with “her” Harry Potter. Those who have had enough of the hustle and bustle of the city will find Calton Hill in the middle of the historic center, a 100-meter high hill with numerous monuments. You can also flee to Princes Street Gardens, a beautiful park at the foot of Castle Rock.
