If you're a fan of classical music, this could be a cool little pilgrimage. If you're not, the views are ethereal in the winter. Basically there's something for everyone. This place was Grieg's summer house, basically. It is pretty cold in winter (the lake literally...More

Although a reasonable walk from the required bus stop, it is not out of reach for an average person. I enjoyed spending time in his home and wandering down to the lake where he had built a composing studio/hut. Gorgeous in winter and probably very...More

Throughly enjoyed the Grieg Museum and house and the views afforded from the composer's hut. We had a knowledgeable guide and were lucky that the sun did unusually shine basking the inlets in sunshine. The exhibition was informative and the film about Grieg's music stunning...More

Edward Grieg is famous Norwegian composer. I was surprised that he had not only Norwegian but also Danish and Scottish roots. Villa gives facts about his life. This is possible to buy tickets for the lunch concert almost every day

Home is interesting but limited size for looking. Guides are brief and not too in depth. Try to go when there is at concert.

We bought the ticket at the tourist centre, and took the bus tour. It was a wonderful experience. The guides in the home were excellent, beautiful setting and fantastic coffee shop. If you enjoy music you will love the piano concert in the fabulous setting...acoustics...More

Visited here as part of our tour. It was interesting enough but if you aren’t into old music it might not be your cup of tea.

airport to Troldhaugen Edvard Grieg Museum (3 Replies)
We will be arriving at the airport at 12:15 from an international flight. Assuming we arrive on time, do you think there is any chance that we could make the 13:00 lunch time piano concert at the Troldhaugen Edvard Grieg Museum? We'd take a taxi from the airport. (I realize it's kind of crazy, but I have been in some really small, efficient, and quick airports.) Thanks!

It could work if the flight is on time.
