18 May Summer – open daily!
Visit the only world heritage in Halland and learn more about the world’s only working long-wave transmitter for telegraphy with its associated system – or, in other words, the world’s largest sms machine!
When the Telegraph engineers nearly 100 years ago walked around in Grimeton, no one could in their wildest dreams imagine that the radio station eighty years later would be the only remaining of its kind and considered so unique that it was named world heritage. On the guided tours, the guide tells you about the world’s only working long-wave transmitter for telegraphy with its antenna system. Or in other words, the world’s largest sms machine!
In addition to the guided tours, there is an exhibition in the shelter from World War II. Also, you can take a walk and look closer at the impressive area with the six antenna towers.
Close to the radio station is the visitor center with café and shop located.
From 1 May until the last weekend in September, a new bus route connects Varberg centre with the country sid. So why not combine a visit to the radio station with some of the other destinations along the route of the bus, such as Ästad Vingård, Öströö Fårfarm, Strömma Farmlodge or Bexell’s rocks.
