Smell the Sights + Treat Your Heart

GINGERBREAD (or in Norwegian, pepperkake) is a quintessential feature of the Norwegian holiday season. You will find gingerbread cookies, ornaments, and houses everywhere—in offices, stores, homes, and schools. Some towns and cities in Norway even go so far as to build replicas of their own city out of gingerbread!

Norway House and our warm family, friends, and community members are creating a Gingerbread Wonderland city in our gallery—a tradition we have come to love, and one that will soon be a part of your family’s annual Holiday to-do list, too! You will find familiar buildings and landmarks created by professional bakers and gingerbread enthusiasts.


Gingerbread Wonderland is a fabulous treat for groups!


Save on your Gingerbread Wonderland experience with a group of 10 or more!



This year we will host a Hats & Mittens donation box in the Norway House lobby. Open from November 12, 2019 through January 5, 2020, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to give!

Hats & Mittens was organized in 1996 as a 501c3 for the purpose of raising money and visibility for various children’s charity in the community. The organization raises money, collects hundreds of hats and mittens for homeless children, and increases awareness of smaller and emerging non-profits serving children. Hats & Mittens is a team of local professionals - all volunteers - who work together for the purpose of celebrating the season and helping children in need.
