Travel Tips to Aberdeen (ABZ)
The lively student town of Aberdeen and its attractions
Aberdeen is bursting with young life as 10 per cent of its inhabitants are students. The city has two universities, one of which was founded as far back as 1495. It is often called the Silver City or the Flower City. The first name comes from the large number of buildings made from silvery granite which sparkles in the sunlight. The second name comes from the countless flower beds in the city which have won the “Britain in Bloom” competition several times. Discover all this for yourself with a flight to Aberdeen.
Discover regimental history in the Gordon Highlanders Museum
The two-hundred-year history of the Gordon Highlanders Regiment is presented impressively in the museum of the same name. Many soldiers from the north-east of Scotland belonged to this regiment. They travelled afar dressed in kilts and impressed with their extraordinary courage and will to survive. The unique displays show numerous mementoes of the troops, including several Victoria Crosses. The staff, many of them former servicemen, tell vivid stories of their time in the regiment. You can watch high quality shows on a screen in a special room. Attention is paid to authentic reconstructions and sharing the experiences and values of the soldiers.
Fascinating tours of Craigievar Castle
Scotland is well-known for its countless castles. Craigievar Castle, a fortress, is located very near to Aberdeen and was first mentioned as long ago as 1457. There is a charter that shows the owners at that time to be the Mortimer family. They sold the building in 1610 for financial reasons to the trader William Forbes. He gave this impressive fortress its current appearance. The building is L-shaped, and is somewhat small compared to other castles. Three floors are connected by a spiral staircase. Narrow bay turrets were added as ornamentation. The friendly staff will enthral you with interesting details and stories. Booking in advance is not required.
Duthie Park – roses, cacti, terrapins and much more
Duthie Park with its magnificent plants is about 1.6 km from the city centre. It has one of Europe’s finest rose gardens and in summer it is a magnificently colourful sight. The various lovingly laid out conservatories are just as fascinating; containing, for example, the second largest collection of cacti and bromeliads in Great Britain. Several ponds were also created, which are now home to fish and terrapins. The greenhouses offer a pleasant climate so you can also enjoy these green spaces in bad weather. Entry is free.
