Troldhaugen was the home of Edvard Grieg and his family. The small estate lies just outside the city of Bergen on landscaped grounds that roll gently down to the water in an area that is surprisingly peaceful and secluded. Grieg's composing cottage is still there and a small museum and concert hall have been built on the grounds. On the... More

This is one of the prides of Bergen. Named after one of the most renowned personalities of Bergen, this museum should be a must place to visit while in Bergen.

Go for the view that inspired this brilliant composer. Listen to the interpretation of the musicians who have studied this unique master. If you're familiar with some of the music you'll be pleasantly surprised by a new sound and rhythm. If you're not familiar with any of the music you'll be wonderfully entertained by a vast array of joy, sorrow,... More

Beautiful place, lots of interesting things about this great composer. It's easy to see how the place inspired magnificent music. This place has a nice shop but what's most important is you can learn about the man and his family. Very strongly recommended.

The grounds of Grieg's House and studio are wonderfully peaceful and beautiful, with a spectacular view of a fjord. We attended a piano recital in the small concert Hall that has the same fjord view. Fantastic!!

We had mixed feelings about our visit to Troldhausen. It is very much a tourist run-a-round and we were surrounded by lots of folks who wanted to take a picture… buy a souvenir… to use the toilet facilities and to have a coffee in a short period of time and the rush, rush, rush seemed to detract from the wonderful...

A great place to spend an hour or two if you have more than one day in Bergen. It's a scenic, very peaceful location, nicely laid out. The house museum is small but informative. It was nice to see the cabin where he wrote his compositions.

The Villa was built in 1885, and the couple lived there the last 22 summers of Edvard Grieg’s life. Troldhaugen became a museum in 1928 and includes Grieg’s Villa, the composer’s hut and the Grieg couple’s gravesite as well as a modern museum building and the concert hall Troldsalen, a chamber music hall seating 200 people. Troldsalen is the centre... More
