Small attraction off the beat and track but well worth a visit if you have any interest in the history of long-wave radio and telegram transmission. Guided tours in English every now and then (we missed it but didn't need it as there is also an English handout to read through as you walk around the building and grounds. It's... 更多
I happened to visit on transmission day - by chance. Signals reached USA, Europe and were also returned (albeit by email :)). The visit was very interesting and is worthwhile to understand how a radio signal is produced, and received (long wave, short wave). The historical side is equally important, for those who like that. An experimentarium explains and illustrates... 更多
I usually think old things and technology is quite interesting. Study how technology has advanced over the years. The guide was good and knew her stuf but I found the place uninteresting and borring. If you like old tech and radio this is the place for you. At least I can now take it of my UNESCO bucketlist. Will probably... 更多
Excellent preservation of a technology that worked perfectly, and was out of date prior to its implementation. Just to devise of the method of its use and manufacture was beyond most beginning graduate engineers of today. A perfect trip for the technologist. not for everyone.
We really liked Grimeton. It seems to be at the end of the world but the drive was well worth it. Very friendly staff and nice cafe. The introduction video was very informative. We could then visit the building with the old machines ourselves. A written guide helped us to better understand how communication between Sweden and the US occured... 更多
Worthwhile diversion on road from Gothenburg to Malmo. It's a few english miles off the main road but well worth the effort. Helpful staff, plenty of parking and the cafe's pretty good for the middle of nowhere. Reccomend!
We visited during hours the facility was closed, which was not the best scenario, but worked out. There is a trail around the first large antenna with some interpretive signs which will tell a good part of the story, and the experience of standing on the grounds of this remarkable historical site is impressive.
A world heritage as this is the last mechanical long wave radiostation that still is operational. Make sure to visit the place when they are transmitting. Awesome machinery.
