Christmas in Astrid Lindgrens Vimmerby

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Visit Astrid Lindgrens Vimmerby during the festive season and enjoy genuine Smålander Christmas spirit.

Christmas is a wonderful holiday and even more special if it is celebrated in an atmospheric environment. Nobody has described Christmas the way Astrid Lindgren has. We remember Pippi, Lotta, Ronja and Bullerby children's Christmases with a smile on our face and a sense of warmth in our hearts. Through the settings filled with anticipation and the exhilarating joy and beauty, Astrid Lindgren has more than anyone else described the Swedish Christmas celebrations.

From the 19th of November to the 20th of December Vimmerby offers a wonderful selection of experiences, Christmas markets, magical tours with a horse and wagon, delicious Christmas buffets, small town Christmas shopping and a lot of other merry activities. Welcome!
