Discover the largest gingerbread village in the world. Christmas in Norway is a magical time of the year and the creation of Pepperkakenbyn, is a wonderful tradition.

This fairy tale setting represents a miniature version of charming Bergen. Local schools design and put together real gingerbread houses, trains, cars and ships.

Walking into the exhibit you immediately encounter the delicious smell of gingerbread.

The family favourite is open from November 16 through December 31, 2019 and is closed on Christmas Day. It is located in centre of the city of Bergen. Find out more about the attraction and ticket prices here.
