The holiday season is approaching, and what better way to celebrate it by going to the Christmas markets? These spots are particularly popular in Europe, and they usually happen from November to December. If you are in the continent during the festive season, you better not miss the chance to experience it yourself.

Visitors, both local and international, flock these markets for sweet treats, recreational activities like ice-skating, and for the overall Christmasy ambiance.

Here are the Top five Christmas markets in Europe:

1. If you are a fan of history, then the Manchester Evening News recommends you to visit Munich Christmas market. Just imagine having to experience all things Christmas against the alps, and in every corner of the small town.

2. The Old Town Square in Prague, Czech Republic transforms into a Christmas wonderland during this period. Guests can indulge in the best Czech beers and fresh pastries being prepared right in front of them. This is where you'll experience an authentically Czech Christmas.

3. According to European Best Destinations, the best Christmas market is in Advent, Zagreb. It's more of a bright street party than an actual market, and it's more about nostalgia than anything. It features musical shows featuring diverse talents, and art exhibitions.

4. Winter Wonders Christmas market in Brussels is one of the key events in the country. They usually have parades and a huge Christmas tree in the middle of the venue. They go literally big on the décor and on the fun, and this is a must for visitors during the season.

5. If you're all about the food during the holiday season, then you'll definitely enjoy the Christmas market at Vienna. The scent of freshly baked goods take over City Hall Square, and they have free-flowing warm drinks to heat things up during the cold weather. It's truly Viennese and truly one to remember.

If you're flying to the continent during the Christmas holidays, don't forget to visit the local Christmas market for good eats and fun finds.

Here's a guide to making the most out of European Christmas markets:
