Guided tours / Groups

Please note: The villa at Lysøen is closed for guided tours 2021, due to the museum refurbishment.

A guided tour of the villa gives you the opportunity to see Ole Bull’s fairytale castle up close. Skilled guides will tell you the story of Bull’s life, give you detailed information about the villa and entertain you with lively anecdotes that give you a feel for Ole Bull’s personality.

Groups can also visit outside the season/outside the regular opening hours.
Upon request, we can arrange private guided tours and concerts – these may also be combined with catering/dinner if desired. In the café, we serve a light lunch (must be pre-ordered) as well as coffee and waffles.
