From the Cahokia Mounds State historic site, Everglades National Park, to the Grand Canyon National Park, the US has 24 UNESCO World Heritage sites. These sites, located in twenty different states and two territories, have continued to attract attention from citizens and tourists because of their cultural/natural significance, with many people planning a visit. Niklas Nikolajsen, a software architect and developer, has visited all the 24 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in record time and now shares his experience.

With a degree in Computer Science from the University of Copenhagen, Niklas Nikolajsen is also an investor and philanthropist. Niklas is one of the pioneers of the Swiss crypto financial sector, having started one of the top gateways to crypto asset investing. He is the founder, former chairman, and current honorary chairman of Bitcoin Suisse AG – a trusted gateway to crypto asset investing offering institutional grade prime brokerage, custody, staking, and collateralized lending.

His digital nomad lifestyle and love for travel have made it possible for Niklas to visit all 24 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in record time. Niklas is an also an avid arms collector and history buff. 

As someone who loves learning more about the world and spends most of his free time watching historical documentaries or reading books, Niklas felt inspired to plan his tour across the 24 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the US.

The World Heritage sites are bastions of natural beauty and cultural significance, they unearth some of man’s earliest creations and give us a picture of what life looked like. Even though this is available in different historical books, nothing beats the experience of being in that space physically.

Niklas wanted to experience all this first-hand. He has now visited all 24 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in record time and is calling on others to support the preservation of these historical sites that are at risk of destruction by shining a light on World Heritage Sites and supporting UNESCO.
