Gingerbread House 2018

Gingerbread House 2018 is a fragrant exhibition of imaginative gingerbread houses. It is also a competition in which children, young people, adults, amateurs and professionals build and create side by side.

This year’s theme: Luxury

Is luxury your own balcony or fireplace? A secret tree house in the woods, or a flat with its very own skateboard ramp? Or is luxury just having a place to live at all? For some people, the most luxurious thing in the world may be granddad’s gingerbread, someone else may dream of a dance floor in a park or a skyscraper covered in gold.

Members of this year's jury:

Frida Leijon, Pastry Chef

Björn Dahlström, Designer

Kristin Gausdal, Architect
