If you have to make choices, visit Edvard Grieg's beloved Troldhaugen. But if you can find the time, Damsgård is an absolute gem. This off-the-beaten-path European palace in miniature from 1770 is the finest example of 18th-century rococo timber architecture in western Norway. The roof is of black glazed tiles from the Netherlands, a sign of grand extravagance back then. In 1983, the municipality of Bergen acquired the house and its furnishings. The interior is painted in a "jolly range of baroque colors." After a visit inside, wander through the lavish baroque rose gardens, with their ponds, Grecian sculpture, and flora in common use 2 centuries ago.
