Accessability: wheelchair users and disabled guests

The Edvard Grieg Museum Troldhaugen is wheelchair accessible – with some exceptions.

- The museum, shop and restaurant are all situated on ground level and directly accessible.

- The Villa is accessible by ramp.

- The path that leads down to the Troldsalen concert hall is on a slope, but has been approved for wheelchairs.

- The path that leads to the composer’s cabin has kept its original structure from Grieg’s time. It is not available for wheelchair users. Guests with moderate walking disabilities may use the hand rails that go almost all the way down to the cabin. Alternatively, we remind our guests that it is possible to get a good view of the cabin from the bridge.

- The path leading down to the tomb is unfortunately not suitable for wheelchairs. If you have a moderate walking disability, please be aware that this is a natural and rugged path that might prove challenging in places. It is possible to enjoy a great view of the Nordås lake from the garden area in front of the Villa.

There are two designated parking lots for cars marked with disabled signs by the main museum building. You may also ask for our available wheelchair, which is lent out in exchange for a deposit.

Companion card
We accept companion cards.
