The statue of Astrid Lindgren

The statue of Astrid Lindgren

Take a moment to relax in the presence of Astrid Lindgren as you sit in the chair across from her iconic bronze statue in the heart of Vimmerby's main square, Stora Torget.

The statue of Astrid sitting in her workroom by her typewriter soon became one of the most photographed tourist attractions in Vimmerby. Unveiled on June 1, 2007, a century after Astrid Lindgren's birth, this extraordinary statue captures her essence. Crafted by the artist Marie-Louise Ekman, in collaboration with Hanna Beling, Heinz Müllner, and students from the Royal Academy of Arts in Stockholm, and has been created in patinated bronze.

You are welcome to sit down opposite Astrid Lindgren in the interactive statue on Rådhustorget!
