Pepperkakebyen (Gingerbread City) - Bergen, Norway

My husband and I visited Bergen's annual gingerbread city yesterday. Every year during Christmas time, children, adults, and local businesses donate homemade gingerbread houses to create what is supposedly the largest gingerbread city in the world. It is hosted in a huge tent in the city center of Bergen during the holidays.

It almost didn't happen this year. Some young guy broke in one night and destroyed the entire exhibit just a few days before its opening date. The citizens of Bergen were very mad to see someone mess with their beloved tradition and an incredible amount of donations were made to resurrect the gingerbread city just in time for Christmas.

I took some pictures to share with you. Hope you enjoy. Happy Holidays!
