In Vimmerby there is a lot to both see and do
Astrid Lindgren has placed Vimmerby on the map of the world. Pippi is not just the strongest girl in the world; she is also the most famous. Who has never heard of Pippi Longstocking!
While Astrid was growing up in Vimmerby she was inspired to great achievements. Everything you have read about in her books is to be found in Vimmerby. (Well, except for "Saltkråkan" and "Karlsson on the Roof" which were probably created somewhere else other than in Småland.)
Emil's enclosed fields, pastures and wooden fences are all over the place and so too are the haystacks, lakes and fantastic environments that the children who visit Bullerby enjoy even today. Things are very much as they were when Astrid lived here, but things have changed nevertheless. Vimmerby is now a small modern picturesque town but it still possesses the tranquillity and peacefulness it has always had.
Astrid Lindgren's World is the biggest attraction in the area. Other places to visit along the Astrid Lindgren theme include Näs, Katthult och Bullerbyn. There are also many who decide to come here simply to enjoy the fantastic countryside. Maybe to enjoy a spot of fishing in one of the many lakes; to paddle a canoe on the River Stångån or walk along one of the long-distance walking tracks.
Welcome to Vimmerby!
