The Tiny, Tiny Town

This is what the small town of Vimmerby looked like when Astrid Lindgren grew up there at the beginning of the century. In many of her books there are small town settings that take their inspiration from her childhood town of Vimmerby. Here you’ll find the shop where Pippi bought 18 kilos of sweets, Båtsmansbacken where Kalle Blomkvist sneaked around, Borgmästargården where Emil rode in on Lukas in the middle of a party, and the square where Brenda Brave sold her peppermint rock.
