Nothing says Christmas like the smell of roasted chestnuts and the excitement and buzz as you stroll around a Christmas market with a cup of mulled wine warming your hands.

As the festive season approaches, cities across Europe transform themselves into winter wonderlands, converting town squares and open spaces into traditional alpine villages serving up arts, crafts and Christmas treats.

Of course, you'd be forgiven for thinking that if you've seen one Christmas market, you've pretty much seen them all - particularly in the big cities around Europe.

But it's certainly not the case for these unique markets located in extremely unexpected locations from under a bridge to deep inside a cave.

Trivago.co.uk has put together a list of the most unique Christmas markets across Europe, perfect for seeking out a festive experience like no other.

So, if you're looking for something out of the ordinary this festive season then have a look at the gallery below
