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.

If you visit the home of the famous composer Edvard Grieg with a guide telling you all about the house and his life, you'll get a very interesting performance.

The place was a bit short-staffed because they had a conference on in the theatre but the tour guide who took me around then ground floor of Grieg's house was very informative and knowledgeable and made the whole thing very interesting. You have to take their advice about how to find the grave site after the tour of building. Unfortunately... More

Traveled by bus for a tour, lunch and a concert. Should have skipped the lunch - too crowded. Enjoy the grounds - which are magnificent and the fabulous lunch time concert. Unique and fun venue.

What a treat to see where Edvard Grieg lived and worked. The home is nicely preserved and the docents were knowledgeable about his life and works. It is a bit of a walk from the train station but easy. About 1 mile. Take the train and save $$ not buying a tour.

Also Grieg IS one of my favorite composers, and remember I am a rocker!!! Usually listentening to hard rock!! But Grieg is the Hard rocker of his time,... More

Go with a local guide to get the full effect. The home/museum while quaint, cozy and well maintained cannot begin to compare with the view and the inspiration the composer had from his little composing cottage. We were treated to an AMAZING piano concert in the lovely little theatre overlooking the cottage and the landscape...an experience of a lifetime.
