In the Swedish town of Vimmerby is it easy to entertain children. The large main attraction is, of course, Astrid Lindgren’s World, but if you prefer an entertainment which is less crowded, there is Nils Holgersson’s World just outside Vimmerby.

Nils-Holgerssons-world-sweden-22Nils Holgersson’s World calls themselves a culture and activity park and is divided into two parts. Both are open in July and August between 10 AM to 5 PM (check their website for changes).

The cultural park is a miniature Sweden, based on the places visited in the book “The Wonderful Adventures of Nils”. It’s fun for small children to run among the small houses, and some you can enter. As a bonus, it is also instructive.Nils-Holgerssons-world-sweden-24

The journey is from south to north, and for those with tired legs is a steam-powered train that runs through the park. Fun for all ages!

The activity park is more speedy and here you can drive pedal cars, boats, climbing and other activities.Nils-Holgerssons-world-sweden-25

Restaurant, a souvenir shop, a mini-golf course and various simple activities are also available in the area.
