Clothing

We recommend dressing with the right clothes for the weather conditions. Grimeton Radio Station was not built with visitors in mind and you are therefore noticeably exposed to sun, rain or wind when moving between the visitor buildings. For our additional activities, we also recommend comfortable clothing.

Motorhome parking

The Grimeton World Heritage Site has 10 pitches for motorhomes. These are subject to a fee in the case of overnight stays.

Photography and filming

Photography and filming are permitted for private use only. Drones are prohibited.

Animals

Animals are not allowed on the premises, with the exception of guide and assistance dogs.

Radio transmission activities

Grimeton Radio Station is still an active site for radio communication. Please pay attention to and respect the signs and boundaries around the visitor area, as equipment, antennas and wires are in use outside that area. During operation, these give rise to electromagnetic fields, but as long as the restrictions are followed, the site considers the exposure to which visitors may be exposed during their visit extremely low. Nevertheless, people with medical implants and pregnant women should avoid being too close when the Alexanderson transmitter is started.

Covid-19

We hereby inform you that the World Heritage Site staff follow the recommendations of the Public Health Agency of Sweden and activities are adapted accordingly. We ask visitors to do the same by:
– staying at home if you have symptoms of a cold
– washing your hands often with soap and water or antibacterial hand gel
– keeping distance from others.
