Welcome to the Grimeton Radio Station World Heritage Site

More than 100 years ago, inventor Ernst Alexanderson was experimenting on the other side of the Atlantic. What he didn’t know then was that his invention would pave the way for the emergence of the wireless society. In 2004, Grimeton Radio Station was added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List of unique natural and cultural heritage sites worthy of preservation for the future. That’s partly because the station at Grimeton is the only one of its kind left that shows what wireless technology looked like in its early years of development, and also what it has made possible for humans in terms of technology.
