Norway Views: Bergen’s ‘Gingerbread Town’ (2022)

DW Travel – An entire city made of nearly 2,000 gingerbread houses? Yum! Every year, right around Christmas, the residents of Bergen build this sweet city out of the traditional European Christmas pastry on the southwest coast of Norway. It can be enjoyed up until the end of December. Have you ever tried gingerbread?

Bergen is a city on Norway’s southwestern coast. It’s surrounded by mountains and fjords, including Sognefjord, the country’s longest and deepest. Bryggen features colorful wooden houses on the old wharf, once a center of the Hanseatic League’s trading empire. The Fløibanen Funicular goes up Fløyen Mountain for panoramic views and hiking trails. The Edvard Grieg House is where the renowned composer once lived.
