We were going to skip this stop but we were glad we took it. We saw his home and garden, but his little studio overlooking the water was worth the visit. One must see the small concert hall, with it's view over his studio additionally. What a great setting to compose music.

Just been to lunchtime recital - great auditorium; quality pianist; lovely music - totally ruined by small kids running around at the back and screaming intermittently, much to the distress of audience and pianist alike. Those in charge declined to take any action - extraordinary lack of respect for the music which the place is supposed to revere.

We walked all around the property, nice tour of his house. No picture taking allowed inside the house. Attended a thirty minute concert which was excellent. Be sure to walk down and look at the little house he did his writing. Very pretty from behind.

We were lucky to go on a beautiful summer's day; even if you don't know who Grieg was, the whole setup is stunningly beautiful, it is definitely worth going. You will also get some idea of the cultural life and history of Norway. We did the trip ourselves. We took the Light Rail (buy tickets before you board), and got... More

Worth taking the coach tour from the Tourist Information centre (on the Quay), but book in advance to avoid there being no tickets left. The setting for the short recital must rate as one of the most beautiful settings in the world, so do not miss the opportunity... Tour guides very knowledgeable It is a slight uphill walk (about 400m... More

We did the bus tour/concert afternoon. The tour was lovely and informational and the recital was great. I'm glad we took the bus instead of walking from the Bybanen as I can see how it would be a bit of hike. Perhaps we limited our free time outside because of the rain, but there was a bit much free time... More

We love classical music, and Grieg is one of the few world-class composer of Norway. It was very nice to stroll around the grounds where he lived, and we were lucky to cath the live concert.

We booked this tour online - picked up from Tourist Info Service in Bergen, very efficient. Absolutely lovely house and grounds, nice cafe a bit understaffed, very knowledgeable Tour Guides and a lovely concert.

You can`t miss this place while beeing in Bergen. A great place to get to know the history of Edward Greig and his music. Live music concerts every day at 1 PM.
