The tradition of Christmas markets is thought to date back as far as the 13th century originating in Germany, but in recent times these markets have recently become a tradition across Europe.

As the weather changes and winter approaches, now is the perfect time to start thinking about which festive affairs you'll attend. These are our 5 top Christmas Market recommendations.

Prague, Czech Republic

Prague comes to life at Christmas, the birthplace of Good King Wenceslas and the capital of the Czech Republic. Old Town Square is the most popular festive market in the city, where you can find daily carol performances, traditional Czech crafts for sale, a charming nativity scene, and a giant Christmas tree.

For those seeking the festive spirit, Prague is the place to go. To get into the local spirit, swap your mug of mulled wine for a glass of grog—rum, water, lemon, and sugar. On one side is Our Lady Before Tyn, a 14th-century twin tower; on the other side is Prague's famous astronomical clock from the 15th century.

A pool of seasonal merriment swirls between the two. You may purchase frosted, hand-blown glass baubles, sausages, pancakes, garlic-and-cheese flatbreads, and Svařák, a local mulled wine made with citrus. Cinnamon scent is distributed throughout the square.

The Old Town Square has sheep, goats, and donkeys waiting patiently for visitors. If you have young children, take them there to get their attention.

Salzburg, Austria

The Salzburg Christkindlmarkt at the Dom and Residenzplatz has been around for centuries and is one of the world's oldest Advent markets. The Salzburg Christkindlmarkt is a unique experience because it sits in the heart of Salzburg's World Heritage-listed Old City.

Traditional local customs and festive decorations like the Christmas tree enhance your experience of Austria. Gifts of special foods, such as strudel, mulled wine or hot punch, help you to enjoy a truly Austrian Christmas.

In Cathedral Square, you can find over ninety stalls selling everything from candles to crafts to jewellery, with the beautiful Northern Alps as a backdrop. The huts’ traditional design, along with its special lighting, creates a unique atmosphere.

During the festive season in this charming Austrian city, you can hear the carol Silent Night performed in the very spot where it was first composed and performed by Mozart.

Socks and other handmade products are available here, as they have been for centuries, rather than novel candles. The Tuesday evening carol singalongs are an excellent way to get into the Christmas spirit.
