Once the home of famous Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg, Troldhaugen Edvard Grieg Museum today serves as a living museum dedicated to his memory and his life's work. Located on a grassy hill overlooking Nordas Lake, the museum complex includes the 19th-century villa where Grieg and his wife lived, the hut where Grieg composed many of his most well-known pieces, and Troldsalen, the concert hall that the Greigs built on the property. Take a moment to enjoy the views and nature that is said to have inspired his genius, and stop by the gravesite where Greig and his wife are buried. Tours are included in the ticket price and held regularly in Norweigan, English, Russian, and German; other languages must be booked in advance. Verify with the museum about tour schedules, and check the website for performances that occur here frequently.

  • I do not know of a more charming place that evokes the life of a composer that "Troldhaugen." The memorabilia is wonderful within the modest home, but the sod-roofed concert hall is the true gem. Our visit was capping by a performance and commentary by a marvelous pianist.
  • Beautiful area containing the house of the late Edward Grieg and his studio. Nice for a walk and small picnic
