Down by the lake, Grieg built a hut in 1891 because he needed to be alone to write his music because many visitors visiting the house interrupted his work.
Grieg's tomb is located on the mountainside facing the lake. On a fishing tour on the lake, Edvard Grief saw this rock and said 'There I would like t rest forever'. It was his cousin, Schak Bull, who designed the tomb.
