Skien gingerbread town


Together we will build Skien Gingerbread City - the city that grows from year to year and is on display in the foyer of Ibsenhuset.

Everyone can participate whether you live in Skien or elsewhere, whether you are a private individual, kindergarten, school, company, whether you are 2 or 100 years old - yes, absolutely everyone!

You can build ordinary houses, famous buildings, farms, cars - anything that belongs in a city!

The city opens on Saturday, December 2 at 11.00 and will be in Ibsenhuset's foyer until Christmas.
