The Statue of Astrid Lindgren

Sit down for a moment on the chair opposite Astrid Lindgren in the main Square (Stora Torget) in Vimmerby! The statue is the work of the artist, Marie-Louise Ekman and has been created in patinated bronze. The statue of Astrid sitting in her workroom by her typewriter was unveiled in 2007 and soon became one of the most photographed tourist attractions in Vimmerby.
