  • A national composer, the house in which a visitor center resides, the surrounding garden invites wandering and sit to catch a relaxing, sea view and also to the sea. A selection of photos and accessories from the composer's family life and career. Of course, a Jewish point... He did not agree to appear in Paris because of the "Drifos theorem" only after the acquittal appeared there.

  • Transported by bus from the tourist office to the Grieg Museum. A very comfortable bus in which a guide tells all the life story of Grieg and explains how the museum is progressing. First a tour of the museum and then time to have a look around at the location which is very worthwhile, because it is beautifully situated on the waterfront and the hut in which Grieg composed to see. There is also opportunity to eat something. Then a music performance is given in a beautiful hall overlooking the hut where Grieg composed, 1/2 hours. A romantic experience. Then you will be taken to the tourist office again by bus. Reservations can be via the Internet or at the tourist office.
