Two unique attractions. One seasonal and one permanent. We did them both.

Pepperkakebyen. Viking ship.

Pepperkakebyen, or the Gingerbread Town, is a unique Christmas tradition and is growing in size year by year. I still remember the time it was held indoors at Galleriet, a shopping mall in the city centre. In 2009, somebody on his way home, utterly drunk, got the idea of conducting a rampage and destroyed the works of all the children and became the most hated person in town. After confessing his crime, he was forgiven and his name was not released in public as the police feared for his safety.

The Aquarium in Bergen, considered one of the largest in Northern Europe, a great place to bring kids. Watching my son growing more and more confident feeding small fish by his own hand was incredible. Open all year around.

Enjoy!
