Bergen Troldhaugen Concert Excursion Reviews

Meaning "Troll's Hill," Troldhaugen was the residence of Norway's most renowned classical composer, Edvard Grieg. The little cliffside shack where Grieg composed is open for tourist exploration. Periodic concerts take place in the 200-seat hall as well.
The visit to Edvard Grieg's summer residence was a great experience.

The Greig excursion was great and I recommend it for music lovers. Viking was the only ship in that day so it was quiet at the site. You also see a different part of Bergen.

We were conveniently docked at the main port close to town, so I got off the ship in the morning to explore the area on foot, including the waterfront, the fish market, and the famous Bryggen houses. If shopping is on your itinerary, save it for Bergen, where the shops are plentiful. After lunch, we did the ship's tour of composer Edvard Grieg's home and Museum, followed by a concert of his works. Our first stop was the stave church, which was an exact replica of those built by the vikings. Next, was the ride to Grieg's house, which sits on a gorgeously landscaped piece of property overlooking the fjord. The concert hall is beautiful, and the stage with it's beautiful grand piano features a large window with a view of the fjord. We enjoyed the concert, and the hall was not crowded as the guests on our bus were the only ones in attendance. However, the museum is rather small, as are the rooms on display inside the house, and are a challenge to enjoy when visiting with a bus load of people touring at the same time. There are two downhill paths to both his gravesite and the composer hut, which I didn't do, as I chose to sit on a bench, rest my sore knees, and admire the scenery. Note: The walk from the bus to Grieg's house is fairly easy on a level paved road. However, the gravel wooded, hilly path to the stave church was a challenge to a few folks on the tour. Read Less

Having been to Bergen last year when we got the cable car up to Mount Floyen independently we opted for the out-of-town trip to Grieg's summer home this time. We weren't disappointed. It's a magical place in a lovely setting and the short lunchtime concert was a treat - though the music wasn't familiar to us. The guide on the bus sang for us as we made the short journey out to Troldhaugen. Read Less

We took a Disney excursion out to Evard Grieg's Troldhaugen with a private piano concert which was excellent. Cost $69pp and worth every penny. You can also take this same tour with concert recital @ 1pm through the Tourist Information Center leaving @ 11am returning @ 2:30pm for $30. We chose the Disney because it was earlier in the day leaving more time to explore Bergen. We also walked around town and would have taken the HOHO bus except the fact that it was raining most of the time we were in port. Read Less
