  • This beautiful home with its history and fabulous views was worth making the effort to get there. It was one of my favorite sites in Bergen.

  • Take the time to listen to Grieg's music before you go. Chances are you are familiar with it anyways. The home and its setting is lovely and worth an hour or so.

  • There's a very nice display of Grieg's life in the visitor center, as well as a coffee shop and toilets. His house is a short walk over a little bridge. The lovely concert hall on the grounds is a perfect venue to hear a piano concert of Grieg's music with beautiful scenery behind the pianist.
  • This was a very enjoyable trip. My husband liked this so much that this is his second visit. I have limited mobility so there were places that were to steep for me to go to, for example Greig's tiny get away cabin.
  • Nothing really to do here, except if you are a big fun of Edvard Grieg. House itself is very small, only 3 rooms on the first floor are open for visitors. You need 10 minutes to see everything, including the oldest exhibit in the house - white multi levels vase for oysters. The territory around house - just a nice piece of Norway nature, and not the best one. Probably, the best option - come atv the day of concert - check the schedule on the web site.
  • I came here in Monday,when it was closed. Best choice I made. There was no one here, and I could explore the real objects of interest: not just the house itself, but the humble house where Grieg composed, overlooking the crystalline fjords, and Grieg's grave in the stark, sheer volcanic cliffside. I cannot recommend this place enough - it feels so lush and primordial, a look into the world of the greatest Norwegian composer.
  • Great museum, friendly staff and a very nice piano concert. The spirit of Evard Grieg is pleasant to feel there and you get a lot of background information.
