Children all over the world know that Pippi is the strongest girl in the world and that Emil is naughty but kind-hearted. They know that Villekulla Cottage is a yellow house with a horse on the veranda and that Emil practically lives in the woodshed. When you bring the children here, to Astrid Lindgren’s World, this is exactly what you’ll find, because here stories come to life.
The settings are taken from Astrid Lindgren’s stories about Pippi Longstocking, That Emil, Ronja the Robber’s Daughter and the other children. Here you’ll find Villekulla Cottage, Katthult farm, Matt’s Forest and many other places that have become famous through her books. Everything that has made Astrid Lindgren one of the world’s best-loved authors. A visit to Astrid Lindgren’s World is like a journey through her stories but for real.
Be here when That Emil hoists little Ida up the flagpole, play tag with Pippi Longstocking or explore Matt’s Fort. Here, you and your family become part of the classic stories, and the line between story and reality, and between theatre and play, is always blurred. Here, Astrid Lindgren’s stories come to life.
Here you can play and play
Astrid Lindgren cared about the right of children to be children. Free play runs like a red thread through all her books, and it does of course also have an important place here in Astrid Lindgren’s World. As well as the exciting settings from the stories that children can explore freely at their own pace, we have lots of places in the park created just for play. This is a place created to give children the chance to experience and discover Astrid Lindgren’s story treasure on their terms.Read more
In Astrid Lindgren’s World you can bump into the characters at any time who previously only existed in books. And it can be a great experience for a young child to be in the middle of the action, with their favourites so close they can touch them. That’s what children can experience here in Astrid Lindgren’s World. It is the meeting between the children and Astrid Lindgren’s characters that is the great adventure and what makes the visit so memorable.
Astrid Lindgren’s World’s guest accommodation has been built at the edge of the forest next to the park. There are several different accommodation options in houses where the streets and surroundings are inspired by early-20th century Vimmerby – ‘The Tiny Town’, or in smaller cottages with their own patios near the forest.
