Christmas in Edinburgh 2005

Every December the City of Edinburgh sets up a German Market in the Princes Street Gardens. They sell German food and crafts. The festival is complete with a ferris wheel, ice skating rink, and several other little rides.

The Princes Street Gardens lie at the base of the Edinburgh Castle. It is quite a site to be seen.

In the picture Princes Street is on the left, the tall spire is the Sir Walter Scott Monument and the building on the far right is the Balmoral Hotel.

Below is a picture of New College and the City of Edinburgh Christmas Tree.

New College is where John is studying for his PhD. It is located on The Mound beside the Edinburgh Castle and above the Princes Street Gardens.

Below is a picture of the Christmas Festival from the Edinburgh Castle.

You can see New College and the Christmas tree on the Right side of the picture, the Princes Street Gardens in the lower left and in the distance you can see Calton Hill (in the center of the picture) and the North Sea.
