Ingemar Eriksson Profile

I have only counted heritages I have been in to or feel I have done the whole visit to. If i should count the "near misses", it would be much more.
With the new tick-boxes I have come up to 83 in late 2011.
Updated during a euopean trip June 2012, 99 and counting.
There is so much to do about this!
115 it is in spring 2015 and after a good tour to France in July 2015 it is 139.

Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe Ingemar Eriksson

The cascades are closed due to maintenance during 2015. Check with sites own website before going there!

Ancienne chocolaterie Menier à Noisiel (T) Ingemar Eriksson

The beautiful building is a turbine hall inside the factory site of Nestle France. This is a strictly private industrial/office area and there is no interest from Nestle to let tourists in.

This magnificent building must be protected but as I see it, not in the form of a WHS as Nestle keeps it so private.

Fortifications of Vauban Ingemar Eriksson

In summer 2015, I travelled France and visited Neuf-Brisach (OK), Besancon (fantastic system of forts, most of them can be seen from the walls of main fort), Camaret-sur-Mer (small and rather poor WHS closed for maintainance 2015 but otherwise a very nice place to visit), Saint-Vaast-la-Hougne (unaccesable due to French military area), Arras (now completely opened, fort accessible by car and foot but no activity for tourists) and at last Longwy (worth a visit).

General lack of information in other languages than french, best i Besancon where they have found out about that.

Cistercian Abbey of Fontenay Ingemar Eriksson

The best maintained/upkept site I have seen but perhaps this is because the site is only opened to paying tourists. It´s history regarding iron handling was interesting as it seems to be a pattern for later iron handling. But we must realized it is all restored and not so much original as many other sites.

Mont-Saint-Michel Ingemar Eriksson

Happened to be there the day the farmers demonstrated in late July 2015. It is a wonder of a site. You have to have a reasonable good ability to climb stairs. Overcrowded and a tourist trap but fantastic anyhow.

Profile data

Name: Ingemar Eriksson

Country: Sweden

Visited WHS: 139

Most Impressive: Egypt pyramides, of the ones I have visited. Perhaps topped by Carcassonne France because of the complexity to upkeep a whole town. The pyramides are rather sturdy even if much of Pyramides glory was taken down to bulid mosques in Cairo.
