Bought the tour ticket (250 NOK or about $30) from the TI in Bergen Havn. It was a pleasant three hour excursion, including a round trip on the tour bus, a guided tour through the home of composer, Edvard Grieg, and a delightful 30 minute piano concert in a beautiful little concert hall.

This was Grieg's home in Norway, though he used it mainly in the summer. The drive out to this home seems long, especially when there are traffic delays, so the payoff seems less than expected. This is an interesting stop on a tour, but a bit disappointing. The house is unique, but you only see three main rooms, and you... More

The tour of Grieg's house, even with a guide, rewuires less than 15 minutes. Wander the grounds and walk down to the water to see the studio where Grieg worked. By all means, catch a luncheon concert. We heard a lovely piano concert.

I didn't know much about Greig before coming here and only came because my friends recommended it. It turned to be hugely enjoyable. The museum was informative, his preserved lakeside cottage very charming and rambling around the grounds was delightful. But the jewel in the crown of the experience was the half hour lunch time piano concert. I had thought... More

I really enjoyed this place. I only knew a little bit about Edvard Grieg before visiting his house and museum. Make sure you watch the video in the beginning as it shows some of the beautiful sites of Norway set to Grieg's music. We also attended the lunch-time concert. It was fantastic. The intimate concert hall has a fantastic view... More

This is a lovely place to visit but be prepared for the walk there! I The Bergen Light Railway (free with a Bergen card) takes you swiftly to Hop station, and from there it's one mile (1.6km) on foot. As you step off the train turn right immediately and walk to the end of the platform where you will see... More

When in Bergen, it is a great occasion to visit Grieg's house. In summer there is a half an hour lunch concert, which allows you to know more about Grieg's music. The auditorium is very nice, with a great view over the lake/Fjord. Tickets and pick up service, if required, can be booked at the tourism information office in Bergen... More

With a view of the fjord and Grieg's composing house, seeing a concert here is a really special thing. Wonderful pianist. We had a sunny day but I heard t is also lovely when raining.

This is truly an elegant place surrounded by beautiful scenery. You can watch a movies showing Norway's magnificent landscapes with Brieg's music as background music. There are also interesting exhibits to see and his residence to visit. We also attended a short concert featuring his music. The concert hall is a unique type. The wall on the stage is made... More
