Small attraction off the beat and track but well worth a visit if you have any interest in the history of long-wave radio and telegram transmission. Guided tours in English every now and then (we missed it but didn't need it as there is also...More

This isn't an attraction that we'd have thought of visiting but we were staying with relatives who recommended it and we were delighted that they did. It opened up a whole new world of pre-mobile communication.

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.
