Welcome to Vimmerby

Even if you didn't grow up on these stories as a child or don't know much about Pippi, you might be surprised by how much you'll grow to like her, or be engaged by the history of the author, how Pippi came to be in the world and how she changed over the years. A brand new museum traces her evolution on film.

Trust your instincts, if none of the above appeals, Vimmerby won't impress in person. If the above makes your inner-child sing a little, you're going to love exploring the town that gave the world a storybook hero whose adventures have been translated into no fewer than 64 languages.
