It’s the most wonderful time of the year! This is a very special time in Astrid Lindgren’s Vimmerby, with lots of authentic Småland Christmas traditions. Christmas is a wonderful time of year, and particularly special if you experience it in a truly atmospheric environment. That’s exactly what we offer in Astrid Lindgren’s Vimmerby. Visit Astrid Lindgrens Vimmerby during the festive season and enjoy genuine Smålander Christmas spirit.
Nobody has ever described Christmas as well as Astrid Lindgren. We always remember Christmas with Pippi, Lotta, Ronja and the children of Noisy Village with a smile on our lips and feelings of warmth in our hearts. Through her images of expectation, joy and beauty, Astrid Lindgren has described the Swedish Christmas better than any other author.
In November and December, Vimmerby offer a wonderful range of events, with Christmas/Advent markets, Christmas food, shopping with small town charm and many other atmospheric experiences.
