The most charming and heart-warming Christmas exhibition ever is made of thousands of houses, trains, cars, people, and other small elements. Altogether they create a miraculous gingerbread town (Pepperkakebyen), which is actually a minimized model of the town of Bergen. Walking around the sweet town one might recognize its various buildings and locations, like for instance, a stadium full of football fans observing a football match. Occasionally princess Rapunzel may pop out of the tower. Every tiniest detail is made of gingerbread. Bergen's schoolchildren contribute to the beautiful and delicious creation baking their own gingerbread items and decorating them. The display opens in the huge tent in the end of November and is available until New Year's Day.
