Activities & Sights

In Vimmerby there is plenty to see and do.

  1. Astrid Lindgrens Näs Attractions In Vimmerby in Småland there is a very special place - Astrid Lindgrens Näs. Here Astrid Lindgren, our most popular writer, was born and grew up. This is the place where she has been inspired for many of her stories and books. Here she heard the stories and met many of the people and the environments that then formed the stories in her books.
  2. Astrid Lindgrens World Attractions Astrid Lindgren’s World is a fabulous place for young and old. Everyone who has grown up with the stories about Pippi, Emil and Astrid Lindgren’s other characters will recognise the settings in the park. There are lots of opportunities to become part of the adventures here.

  4. Bullerbyn Attractions The three small farms in Sevedstorp were the model for Astrid's books about Bullerby. This is where Astrid's father Samuel August grew up and this is where the films were made about Bullerby in 1986/87 under the direction of Lasse Hallström.
  5. Hiking Activities Vimmerby has more than 170 km of hiking trails and walks through forest and fields.
