This is a well maintained, visitor friendly world heritage site that is well worth a day or half day. Enormous generators, towers, control panels from the 1920s are an impressive site and even great for inspiring steam punk fantasies. Activities include guided tours of the...More

I know very little about radio. This might be the reason why I’ve waited so long to visit this attraction one hour drive South of Göteborg. We had the guided tour which I think is necessary if you would like to learn something about Swedish...More

Touring with english speaking guide was excellent. Demonstration of early radio communication across the atlantic. Later important for World War 2 communication ao to submarines. The facilities are in partly operation today for private purposes. Worth a visit not least for technical interested persons.

Excellent preservation of a technology that worked perfectly, and was out of date prior to its implementation.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.
