Take a walk!

Do you ever wonder what is behind the doors of the old houses along Storgatan, where Astrid Lindgren got her first job or where there are ancient monuments from the younger Iron Age? Welcome to take part in two walking trails, one in Astrid Lindgren’s footsteps and one through the culture and history of Vimmerby.

Astrid Lindgren’s stories are filled with details and tales from places and people who have been a part of her life in Vimmerby. In the walk “in Astrid Lindgren’s footsteps” you will get a closer look into the places that have shaped some of your favorite stories.

In the walk “Culture and History” you get a deep dive into Vimmerby’s history mixed with exciting anecdotes about places and people. From the declared heritage house on Storgatan to Vimmerby’s church history, the walk leads you through the city.

Take the opportunity to spend time between experiences, put a cultural stamp on the shopping trip or combine your lunch with lighter walk.

Take part in the entire walk or select parts of them. It’s all up to you!
