We visited this museum with a small tour group, and appreciated one of the museum staff taking us around the house and informing us about Grieg's life and fame. The house is clean, well decorated and maintained, and you get a nice relaxed feeling as you enter and walk around. You can envision Grieg and his wife entertaining and putting... More

If you are interested in Grieg and his music, this is the place to get better acquainted. There are lots of artifacts-- pictures and music and furniture of his. You will get an idea about what kind of man he was, too.

We could not enter the house as it was closed for the season but we did walk around it and in the park, climbing the rocks - the view is breathtaking. Definitely worth a visit even if you can't get inside the house!

As a Australian tourist to Norway, December is not the ideal time to visit because of limited daylight and impending cold weather. However, visiting Grieg's homestead in the off season enabled my wife and I to have a personal guide through the whole complex that really gave an appreciation of the beauty of the place that inspired Edvard in his...

If you ever visit Bergen, going to Troldhaugen is a must. So much musical history and beautiful surroundings! Visited in August 1998.

Troldhaugen is the eccentric house of Edvard Grieg. Situated with a beautiful sight over the sea and fill with original instruments and memories from the great musician. It is a enjoyable visit about 20 minutes drive from the center of Bergen. If you only have a couple of days in Bergen and Grieg or Classic music history are not topics... More

Visited this site as part of a tour group after a short bus ride. The setting is beautiful, just the sort of place that would inspire a creative person such as Grieg. The Norwegians are very proud of his stature and accomplishments, and share their enthusiasm. The house tour is very short, with only a small downstairs available to tourists... More

We arrived at Troldhaugen half an hour before opening at 9.00. This allowed us to wander around the gardens before we were able to gain access to the house. The house/museum itself is not large, & an hour would be more than sufficient to see everything inside. But it is interesting & provides a good insight into the life of... More

We took the tram & did the 20min walk. We recommend this mode, no need to do the tour bus. We were after season, so no concert. Good staff who speak English and ... Wish they had more CDs.
