About Ole Bull and Lysøen

Ole Borneman Bull (1810–1880) was a Norwegian violinist, often called Norway’s first international star. Born in Bergen, by the time he was four he could play on the violin all the songs he heard his mother sing. At the age of nine he played first violin in the Bergen Theatre orchestra and was a soloist with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra. Ole Bull built the fairytale castle at Lysøen in 1897–73 as a summer residence for himself and his second wife. Lysøen was opened as a museum in 1974 and is a legendary concert venue at the Bergen International Festival.
