The place for the tech freak

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.

When we visited the museum was closed, but there were a path to walk with information boards, that provided good information about all the things to see. The first wireless communication signals were sent from here to the US using Morse code and wireless telegraphy technology

There is no question about the world heritage status - it's a given! The place is amazing and utterly unique....from a very certain point of view.
