Lysøen IslandThe beautiful...
The beautiful and extraordinary villa on Lysøen (the Island of Light) was built as a summer residence for the Norwegian violin virtuoso Ole Bull (1810 - 1880) in 1873. Ole Bull’s charismatic personality and musical excellence had a great influence on contemporary artists. He spent his summers relaxing on Lysøen, and often invited fellow artists and musicians. Ole Bull also had created some 13 km of pathways to provide his guests with leisurely strolls through the lovely scenery of Lysøen. He died on the island in 1880. In 1973, his granddaughter Mrs. Sylvea Bull Curtis of Connecticut donated the villa and all its contents to the Society for the Preservation of Norwegian Ancient Monuments. Café for light refreshments. Rowboat hire
