The childhood home

Astrid Anna Emilia Ericsson was born in the small red house on the farm Näs in Vimmerby more than a hundred years ago.

The house looks just as it did when Astrid Lindgren was a little girl. She restored it herself in the 1960s. Here you can step right into the environment that inspired the beloved stories about That Emil, the Children of Noisy Village, Mardie and all the others.
