It was interesting to wander the grounds as it's a beautiful area. The combination with the concert is what it made worthwhile as pianist was very enjoyable. The concert hall overlooks the lake with an incredible view.

My parents loved Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suite so I couldn’t resist going to this museum which is the composer’s summer house. As you would expect, it has original furnishings when the composer and his wife lived there. A great little gift shop where you can...More

We had a guided tour of Edward Grieg’s summer house. Excellent display and exhibition. The lunch time piano recital at the concert hall was excellent. Just piano pieces from Grieg. Worth the visit

The house and hut are interesting and it’s great to see the view that inspired the composer. There is a small museum & gift shop as you arrive which are interesting, particularly if you’re not very familiar with Griegs personal background. The highlight for me...More

The museum itself was good and well done. You could visit his house and the hut next to the lake where he created his music. The real amazement was the concert hall where you have a modern pianist playing some of his pieces. It lasts...More

If you follow the music of Grieg then a visit to his home where he composed is a must. There is the main home and the composing hut. There is also a very steep path where he is buried with his wife who was his...More

You can take public transport too. The easiest is the Light Rail (Bybanen) from the ciry to the stop Hop. From Hop follow signs to Troldhaugen for about 2km (25 min).
