Our good friends in Bergen, Norway took us to lunch and a concert at Edvard Grieg's home, "Trldhaugen". The museeum consists of Grieg's home, a restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating, and a small concert hall with a beautiful view of his little cabin on the lake, where he did most of his composing. The tour through his house was... More

It's no wonder Grieg composed such wonderful music, while overlooking the Nordas Lake. It's gorgeous. After a tour of his house and the museum we were treated to a piano recital by a lovely young woman, Gunilla Sussmann, who played some of Grieg's lesser known pieces beautifully. All this while overlooking the lake and trees through the window. Fabulous!

Just outside Bergen is the well-preserved and lovely home of composer Edvard Grieg, one of the few artists to achieve great fame and financial success in his own lifetime. His home was unfortunately under renovation during our visit so the outside was obscured by construction, although the interior is open and interesting. Tauck arranged for a wonderful private concert in... More

Anyone who would name his home the Troll's House is bound to be interesting. The Museum, his house, the garden and his workshed are all well worth a visit.

We had a great 18:00 concert with Piano and a Soprano at the Troldhaugen room, overlooking the Fjord. Unfortunately we could not enjoy the poems nor lyrics (since we do not understand Norwegian) but the performance was very good and the music wonderful and very well played. The room is amazing, with a window behind the players facing the water.

The bus tour out to Edvard Grieg's home and museum included a summary of the composers life and times on the way out, a guided tour of the home and a half hour concert of a selection of his music. The pianist provided information about each piece she played. We didn't have enough time to really have a good look... More

Grieg is one of my and my wife's favourite composers. This had, therefore, to be high on the list in any visit to Bergen. We planned to extend our visit to the city with a trip around and on the fjords, and so we picked up the car a day early to get out to Troldhaugen. We were not disappointed.... More

If you get a chance to attend a concert here you really should. There is no better place to enjoy the music of Edvard Grieg than Troldsalen (the small concert hall), where the view is similar to that Edvard Grieg had from his small composer's hut. Take your time to walk around the property and it's easy to see where... More

Lovely view of the lake and an attractive and comfortable home. The Troll trees line the drive into the museum. Introduction in theatre is Grieg music with inspiring photos of Norway. Some steps and climbing to see everything. Momentos in museum are interesting.

Do take time to enjoy the concert. The pianist is a brilliant addition to the visit. The museum is small, so avoid the cruise ships when possible. The concert is spectacular either way. You can book a private concert or join one of the public performances.
