Bergen is home of two famous composers: Edvard Grig and Ole Bull. Worth visiting their homes (museums).

For those of you that are Grieg fans, I will atemt to make a traveloge (under construction...)



If you would like to read some litterature to 'put you in the mood' before visiting Bergen, I can recomend any book by crime-author Gunnar Staalesen. His descriptions on Bergen are superb, and his books are translated into many languages. Read more at this link
