The Grieg Hall (Grieghallen) is a 1,500 seat concert hall in Bergen, Norway. Designed by Danish architect Knud Munk and completed in 1978. It's the home of the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, and hosts the Bergen International Festival, as well as the Norwegian Brass Band Championship (oh yes, and hosted the Eurovision Song Contest in 1986).

The hall is named after Bergen-born composer Edvard Grieg, music director of the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra from 1880 until 1882.

Several of the seminal Norwegian black metal albums were recorded in the Grieg Hall.
