Urban biking and classical concert
About the trip
Self-guided day trip to the famous composer Edvard Grieg’s villa Troldhaugen. Here you can enjoy the daily, half-hour lunchtime concert in Troldsalen. In the concert hall, you can listen to Edvard Grieg’s music while enjoying the very scenery that once inspired him in his work.
This is a self-guided tour, which means that you will be provided with an app, which guides you in the right direction and gives you information about the places you visit along the route. This bike tour will take you to the traditional “upper class area” of Bergen. The tour starts at Bryggen and the route is going south of Bergen – first through the city centre. On the way, you will visit the local castle, Gamlehaugen, where the royal family stays when they visit Bergen. You cannot enter the castle. However, there is a great outdoor area where it is nice to go swimming on hot summer days.
The route continues along the road called “Paradisstranden” (Paradise Beach). Next up is the house Wernerholm, where Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson wrote the national anthem of Norway. Your tour ends at Troldhaugen, where you can enjoy a great lunch accompanied by a concert with classical music. The Troldsalen concert hall is situated right next to Grieg’s villa and is constructed particularly with chamber music in mind. In the concert hall, you can listen to Edvard Grieg’s music while enjoying the very scenery that once inspired him in his work. Through the large window that adorns the stage you can see the little cabin where many of Grieg’s pieces were composed.
