Guided tours / Groups

Many of those who visit Lysøen also want to see Ole Bull’s villa from the inside.

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.

TIMETABLE Guided tours in the summer
