What a treat being at the place Edvard Grieg composed and worked. The house is nicely preserved and the docents were very knowledgble. The small cabin where he composed is not open to the public but you can walk around it and peek in to see the beautiful view he had to be inspired to write his music.

From a distance, Grieg's home and cabin and water view may seem less than interesting. However, making the trek here is enjoyable. Public transportation can be arranged from abroad, as can tickets to the on site concert. Mix it all together, and it's a remarkable place to visit.
