Every year around Christmas time in Budapest there is a charming, festive Gingerbread City built by local Hungarians, families, friends, businesses, engineers, architects, and thousands of other volunteers. You can visit the exhibition, a fascinating city of tiny creations made all from gingerbread.
The city of Budapest Gingerbread features hand sized homes, local landmarks, as well as beautiful vehicles, trains, cars, boats, and cityscape scenes. Walk through the city and enjoy the aromatic wafts of the gingerbread as well as the enchanting sights of the mini city.

The innovative display with its magically lit gingerbread art pieces connects well with the holiday spirits in December.
Gingerbread cities have mushroomed all over Europe, including the V&A Museum in London, or Pepperkakebyen in Bergen, where apparently the biggest Gingerbread City is built every year at Christmas time.
