A panorama tour by car including a visit to Troldhaugen
This tour will show you the main sights of the city centre. From the car you will see for instance the Wharf area/Bryggen, the fortress, the city park, the church of St. Mary's, the small hamlets with typical wooden houses and the Grieg concert hall. You will also go south of the city, where you will see beautiful residential areas, and you will visit Edvard Grieg's residence, Troldhaugen. This villa was built in 1885 and was the residence of the composer Edvard Grieg, and his wife Nina, for 22 years. Troldhaugen is located in picturesque surroundings by the Nordåsvannet lake and is now a museum. The interior is kept the way it was from when Grieg lived there in 1907. There is a little bit of a walk to get to the actual villa from the parking area.
