'Tis the season round the world

Check out an amazing gingerbread city & holiday sparkles across the globe!

Who hasn’t stolen their share of gumdrops off a gingerbread house roof? Wait ‘til you see the temptations awaiting in Bergen, Norway! Tour their famous “gingerbread town” - or "Pepperkakebyen" in Norwegian - visited by 100,000 people each year in non-COVID times. Hear the story behind this gingerbread masterpiece from DW News & the inspirations for its design from the “Gingerbread town architect” (is that a real a job? How can we apply??). We can all dream of walking through this sugary village & grabbing snacks off the buildings along the way!
