This suburban treasure is well worth a visit. Beautiful grounds pretty views from the property. It is a well preserved home showcasing the life of Grieg. The wonderful bonus of the visit was a piano recital in the music hall of some of the compositions of Grieg by a local pianist.

The place is genuine and intact and shows the suburban villa of composer Edvard Grieg and his wife Nina. It's placed on a beautiful height overlooking a picturesque fjord. It's worth a trip from the city centre of Bergen.

Been here so many times I've lost count. Troldhaugen is very well taken care of. The house itself is very interesting, though of course more-so for Grieg fans, and the modern museum is well presented. There's a film room where you can learn about Grieg's life, and a souvenir shop for all your Grieg needs. I heavily recommend going to... More

Visit on a weekday in October. It was a very good, informative, and quiet experience. Very attentive guide. Not the easiest place to get to without a car.

We didn't know much about Grieg before we arrived here, but it was great to see the beautiful hut where he worked on his compositions, and to learn a little more about his life. The lunchtime concert was excellent.

If you are able to visit the museum when there is a concert playing, I would definitely recommend attending. The museum and home are very interesting and the pianist we heard was top notch.

An outstanding visit to a beautiful view of the fjords. No wonder that Edvard Greig wrote such terrific music, it it truly a place to sit and contemplate. . I visited here with my granddaughters, who are of various teenage years and early twenties, they were enthralled by the experience and enjoyed the lunchtime concert. Could definitely be an introduction... More

A great place to visit and see the home of Edvard Grieg. Besides a beautiful house, it is a very beautiful area overlooking the lake. We enjoyed the history and area.

Do see the movie; it illustrates in gorgeous film why Grieg's music reflects his impressions of waterfalls, sea, et al.

The museum itself is quite small and there isn't too much to see unless you're a real Grieg fan. There are concerts on frequently in front of a giant window overlooking the same lake that Greig did when he composed his music. For a better experience go with one of the tours (leaves from fishmarket at 11am daily, 250NOK) which... More
