“Well worth the trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

Initially planned to go on the organised trip from tourist office , however this stopped end august and we wanted to go on 2nd Sept. Tourist office advised re where to get the tram and which stop to get off. Tram tickets are bought at the stop at a machine. At the stop there was a map on the shelter re how to walk to the Museum - easy to follow but a good 25 minute walk and we walked briskly. Start by walking back to wards Bergen then turn left at the traffic lights. You can also follow road signs from these lights. Not unpleasant though through a residential area. We noticed quite a few people arrived by taxi. As said previously do try and be there for the 1pm concert which was excellent. Good views from the grounds. Grounds cannot be fully explored if you have mobility problems - paths steep and uneven. Café/toilets/giftshop on site

“history around you”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

A very nice place to see. Museum is not very big but quite interesting. If you go there before 1 p.m. then you can enjoy a lunch concert in Troldsalen. The villa and suroundings are amazing, great views, and it's quite romantic place in the matter of fact. It's worth to go down to Griegs thomb and spent a little time on a small, half naturall promenade :)

“The piano concert alone was worth the ticket!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

We arranged our tour through the TI, so we had a nice bus ride to Troldhaugen and then the guided tour of the home, followed by a terrific 30-minute piano concert in the beautiful concert hall. Wonderful!

“Griegs home & concert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

This is a must. Booked it at the tourist office, in Bergen, picked up the coach, at 11.30, outside the tourist office. The guide, a young lady, explained everything about Bergen, as we went through. Arrival at the Villa, our escort showed us to the museum & onto the Villa, giving an insight, to his life, you can imagine, with the environment around, how he could compose, wonderful music. The highlight, was the concert, in the new concert hall, over looking, a lake & his garden shed. Sacha the pianist, played to perfection & to the audience . A very memorable day.

“Well worth a look at a very special piece of history!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Booked tour through Bergen tourist that nicked transport bus, house tour and lunch concert. On the way to/from saw the suburban view of Bergen and received a city tour. Gregg's home and setting on a lake are lovely Concert was very enjoyable and was set in a concert hall that overlooked Grieg's cabin and lake. Bergen us a beautiful city but has a lot of tourist venues I.e shopping. It you have an entire dat, visit Greig's home and you won't be disappointed.
