Private tour to Troldhaugen, Edvard Grieg's villa


Do you wish to visit Bergen through the eyes of one of its greatest artists?

You are in the right place! Come and join me to discover « Troldhaugen », Edvard Grieg's summer villa, its composition room and admire some of his musical works on display at the museum. Come and discover the special atmosphere that inspired Grieg to compose the famous "Peer Gynt".

You will also have the opportunity to visit Fantoft stave church, one of only 28 stave churches still remaining in the country. (Corner-posts "staves" and a framework of timber with wall planks standing on sills. These walls are known as stave walls, hence the name stave church)

Allow yourself to relax in the car whilst you are personally guided through this panoramic tour of Bergen. Take time to enjoy the moment and learn more about this city's rich and intense culture.

Itinerary

Our trip will start from your hotel in Bergen and will continue by car towards the villa « Troldhaugen » of Edvard Grieg (1843 - 1907), the famous composer most well known today for having composed the music to Ibsens play « Peer Gynt », situated about twenty minutes from Bergen. There, I will tell you about Grieg's life whilst visiting the villa, its gardens and Grieg's grave. We will also have the opportunity to visit the little cabin where the famous composer worked on his overtures.

After a visit to the museum, we will continue our tour heading towards the stave church of Fantoft. Having seen the church, we will return to Bergen passing by the secondary residence of the Norwegian Royals.

This tour is about you and your experience, I operate on no other schedule than yours. Your comfort and pace are my highest priorities.
