Astrid Anna Emilia was born on 14 November 1907 here on the farm Näs. Astrid was the second of four siblings. It was her and her siblings who, together with the cowherd’s children and the children from the vicarage next door, were the real children of Noisy Village. The story about their playing has now spread around the world. It was here that Astrid climbed the lemonade tree and played ‘got you’ and ‘don’t touch the floor’ with her siblings. It was here that she jumped in the hay and listened to stories in Kristin’s kitchen.
The childhood home
Join a guided tour and go back in time to when Astrid Lindgren grew up at Näs together with her three siblings, parents and many others who worked on the farm. The childhood home was restored by Astrid Lindgren herself in the 1960s, as she remembers it from her childhood. This is where Astrid Lindgren’s own story begins.
The childhood home is privately owned and can only be visited on a guided tour.
