SVT report: Tourist alarm from Nimis

Substantial increase in the number of visitors: "It has been chaotic"

Today, the Swedish newspaper SVT has reported the number of visitors at Nimis has increased significantly, and this has caused the administration at Kullaberg to roar away. The following is an English translation of the story as it appears at the SVT website.

We do not recommend going down to Nimis.

Last week, more than 5,000 cars parked at the car park closest to Nimis. During the same period last year, there were 3,700 parked cars. According to the county administrative board’s own measurement.

“There are a lot of people, a lot of visitors. A chaotic situation arises, because the number of places is limited. In addition, parked cars block other traffic,” says Per-Inge Persson, who works at the nature conservation administration at Kullaberg.

“We do not recommend going down to Nimis”
The nature conservation administration at Kullaberg believes that Nimis is not a safe place to visit.

“We’re worried. It is very complicated and difficult for us to handle. It is very steep to go down to Nimis, and then come families with children who are going down,” says Jimena Castillo.

The administration has now deployed parking guards to control the situation.

“We have about eight weeks as it is high season and a lot of people. Then there is a lot of traffic. And most people who park at that parking lot go to Nimis,” says Per-Inge Persson.

Nims is an artistic structure on the shores of Kullaberg, near Arild, made with driftwood and fallen timber by Lars Vilks, 1980–92.

Nimis is the only major work of art of the land art type made in Sweden, and it has attracted much attention. As it was built without a permit in a nature reserve, it has also been the subject of legal intervention and controversy.

  1. Fellow Ladonians,

    It’s been 10 years since I last wrote you all. Just before and for 10 years after I have been through tough times. Through praying and changing my ways from my old guard self. I have returned. Look at all the titles I have gone for and received. The Biggest Prize was not Austria. No it was the title THE EMPEROR OF SCANDINAVIA. Plus I had all the documents from the Internationaler Adelsbund from Germany duly recorded by numerous Local Notary Public’s Date the documents here in INDIANA just as they where each dated by the I.A. in Dusseldorf Germany. Common Law stuff to add a little authentic flair here. My webpage is mainly T-POTS with relevant nation claims on them. I would like to change the Ministry of Future into The Ministry of Infrared non-fisheye Zoom FLAT EARTH. If I’m welcome to return on a sporadic basis.
