Build the Gingerbread City 2019

Join us in making this year's gingerbread city at the Preus Museum!

At the Christmas market we open a fragrant and crazy exhibition of beautiful Hans-and-Grete houses inside the premises of the Preus Museum.
The house can be classic and simple, or an architectural masterpiece - the city has room for all kinds!

This year we have two classes:
