Be there when That Emil hoists Ida up the flagpole, play tag with Pippi Longstocking or explore Matt’s Fort. In Astrid Lindgren’s World you and your family become part of the classic children’s stories, and the line between story and reality, and between theatre and play, becomes blurred. The park is full of imaginative play areas, and music and singing can be heard from our many stages throughout the day. If you become hungry, find a nice picnic area or visit one of our restaurants that serve hearty Småland food made from local produce. When you tired after a full day of play and unforgettable meetings, you can sleep comfortably in a chalet right by the park.
We are open daily from 19 May to 27 August. We are also open on weekends in September and during the Swedish autumn half-term break. Opening dates and prices is available here
Astrid Lindgren’s World is not one but many worlds. In one and the same day you can visit Villekulla Cottage, Katthult, Matt’s Forest, Wild Rose Valley and many other places from Astrid Lindgren’s books. Here you are free to play inside the buildings and in the surrounding settings, as long as there isn’ta performance going on. Performances linked to the different places are at set times of the day. In between, you can meet Pippi Longstocking, That Emil, Mardie, Karlsson on the Roof and all the others who like to join in the play. The park also has places just for play, like a barn with hay to jump in, houses on a child-friendly scale and a ‘don’t-touch-the-ground trail’ to put your balance to the test.
If you haven’t read Astrid Lindgren’s books, you may still have seen one of the films or heard the music. Seeing well-known scenes from Astrid Lindgren’s stories performed before your eyes and hearing the classic songs sung by Pippi, Emil, Alfred and all the others are an important part of the experience at Astrid Lindgren’s World. And when the performances are over, the children can meet the characters in their settings.
If you have travelled some way, it may be good to know that you can enjoy a good night’s sleep in our own accommodation facility, right by the park. Several of the chalets were renovated as recently as 2016 and all are equipped so you can heat up or cook your own food. And you can also book our brand new accommodation ‘The Tiny Town’.
